Storyline

Emile Brockton enjoys TV, chicken pot pies, and...well, not much else. His life has become a meaningless procession of banal activities that prompt him to spice things up the only way he can devise: by killing himself. However, the road to suicide is filled with distractions, and these create the ultimate conundrum for him. It turns out there's quite a market for autobiographical snuff flicks, and Emile's new acquaintance from work (who is a few tacos shy of a combo plate) decides to document his demise.

hilarious movie that should develop a cult following.
26 April 2000 | by (Lakewood, California) – See all my reviews

like another commenter i saw this film at a film class at csulb. it was hilarious in a subtle way. if you can appreciate that type of writing and acting you should like this film. hopefully this film gets released because for a first time try by these guys it could gain cult status like 'bottle rocket'.
