Richard Breggs is a struggling actor living in an apartment with his girlfriend. After a conversation with a friend, Richard decides that he is too much of a "nice guy" and that the key to success is to act like a jerk. After his new obnoxious personality lands him a part in a play, Richard thinks he is on his way to being a success. He goes to sleep in his apartment and wakes up in a mansion. It is four years later, but Richard doesn't remember anything that has happened in the elapsed time, due to an accidental bump on the head that gave him amnesia. It turns out that he is now a famous TV star, known for being obnoxious, selfish, and difficult to work with. Richard (now known as Dick) realizes that while his new personality gave him success, it also caused him to lose his girlfriend and best friend. He sets about trying to right the wrongs of the past 4 years. Written by

I had seen the ads for this movie and was sitting on the fence until I saw it. This film is really surprising. It tells the story of Richard Breggs, the nice guy. He has gone his entire life being the nice guy, and what has it gotten him, nothing he thinks. He lunches with his friend Bob Saget to discuss their personal failures. They agree that it is the a**hole who gets the job, it is the jerk who gets ahead in this world. So Richard becomes Dick that same day. Conning his way into a part in a play, he quits his job and tells his girlfriend of his plans. He awakes after a fight with his live in girlfriend ( a very cute Elizabeth Berkley from Saved By the Bell and Showgirls)to find he has forgotten the last 5 years and is now the biggest star on TV, he has also become the biggest Dick in the world. Watch as Richard tries to reclaim his life or at least become the guy he used to be. 3 thumbs up!!
