Storyline

Christian Taylor, a writer on the hit TV series Six Feet Under (2001), is being profiled by a British documentary crew when he's fired, although he doesn't know the doc crew overheard the firing. They follow him around Las Vegas, where Six Feet Under was filming on location, and where he is now ostensibly doing "research" for a script he claims to be writing, but is actually pursuing a dream to become a dancer in a Vegas show. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com> / edits by TrivWhiz

A brilliant "mockumentary"!!!
9 July 2002 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

This movie is filmed in the style of a documentary but it's not. It's a make believe world in which Christian Taylor(the writer of the great T.V. show "Six Feet Under")is fired and goes to Vegas in order to become a dancer, a Showboy! He's too short, he's too old and he is TERRIBLY funny!!! Watch out for cameos of Whoopi Goldberg and Siegfried and Roy. Funny!!! I laughed all the way to the parking lot, and I'm still laughing... Best 'mockumentary' I've seen and best comedy in a long while...
