Storyline

Blaine Kinney, an aspiring young filmmaker, approaches an eccentric and extremely wealthy businessman, Fentworth Pennyweight III, for help in financing his first film. To his surprise, Mr. Pennyweight agrees to fund the entire movie with one small stipulation: Blaine must wear a ridiculously large and effeminate pair of earrings for exactly one year. Desperate for money, he agrees to the deal. Written by <efram@newbornpix.com>

Laugh out loud funny
28 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

After reading that Pennyweight's filmmakers had just won this year's Director's Competition at Project Greenlight and discovering that they were Maine natives, I was able to find this film for viewing on scifi.com. What a treat it was to watch as I found myself laughing out loud throughout the film. I'm glad to see local filmmakers recognized, congratulations.
