Dude Schmitz, an independent filmmaker, attempting to secure funds for his second feature, blows an opportunity at what promises to be a lucrative interview with pop sensation Britney Spears. Dejected, Schmitz discovers Robert Stephens, a young, gay Britney impersonator. Schmitz takes off for New Orleans with Stephens, promising him a chance to meet his teen idol, all the while taking film of Stephens' cross-country exploits and pawning them off as footage of the real deal.

I saw this at Sundance expecting a fun comedy, but I was dead wrong. I laughed just about twice, and they were both forced laughs. About half of the audience walked out sometime during the movie. And I'm going light on it. This movie is absolutely starved of imagination or wit; it plays desperately, amateurishly, and crappily. The writing? Didn't seem like there was any, even with the wooden acting and consistent idiocy. As for Mark Borschardt and Mike Schank... "Britney" does "Coven" shame.
