Matt Mulhern stars as an out of work sit-com actor visiting his empty childhood home on the Jersey shore while struggling to make sense of the loss of his father, his past, and, for one funny and heartbreaking week, himself.
FBI director Jack Devine always sets up his brother Joe as undercover to trick mobsters. His latest cover is as movie producer Joe Diamond, to get Tommy Sanz for Teamster racketeering. His cover requires a script - the one movie theater manager Steven Schats and his brother Marshall 'Paris' wrote, supposedly a cancer biopic. So Steven is hired as director, his greatest dream, even if producing an Arizona desert drama on Rhode Island is far from ideal. When a former Oscar nominee volunteers to star, the cover gets out of hand till everyone believes in it, even the FBI brass- or not? Written by

The same extras playing tourists, wearing the same clothes (notably a woman with a fringed leather jacket), can be seen watching the "Ponderosa" theme park show, in two different scenes supposedly months apart. See more »

This was funnier than we thought it would be, we really enjoyed it. It's no Matrix or Shawshank but it's not supposed to be. As far as comedies go, it was creatively warm and mostly...entertaining throughout! (which is hard these days to find in most films)
Everyone did a good job with some good chemistry.

So, if it looks the 'least' bit interesting to you, then go and see it, I bet you'll enjoy it. Support a good lil film that has much more to offer you then most of the packaged crap out there.
