This movie really annoyed me. The entire thing had sort of this amateur, student-made television show type feel to it. The acting was bad and the plot was stupid.
John is the manager of a comedy club that supposedly started the careers of comics like Colin Quinn and Woodey Allen. When his new land-lord becomes the woman he had a one-night-stand with on New Year's Eve, she decides to evict the club because she felt that John mistreated her that New Year's Eve.
The movie is filled with cameos, and has a couple badly acted, but funny jokes, but the ending is really predictable and really stupid. The entire premise of the film becomes so apparently pointless. The fact that the main character, being the unrighteous man he is, manages to succeed (without doing anything but having a few connections), proves how empty, and meaningless this film is.
