A psychologically troubled novelty supplier is nudged towards a romance with an English woman, all the while being extorted by a phone-sex line run by a crooked mattress salesman, and purchasing stunning amounts of pudding.
A young war reenactor makes a friend on the battlefield who helps him use strategy to take on his high school enemy. Driven by newfound confidence, he seduces the friend's fetching older sister and risks the friendship. Reality intervenes when the illness of his ex-addict father forces the anger his irony masks to the surface and he has to decide if staying in a fantasy world is worth the consequences. Written by
Billy Bob Thornton was offered the part of Abe but was unavailable. Bill Paxton turned the part down. Gary Cole auditioned and was offered the part but he could not fit it into his schedule. Christopher McDonald was cast in the role the night before filming started. While McDonald was on the set, he discovered that he could not fit it into his schedule. The role was then offered to Christopher Lloyd but he turned it down to do Haunted Lighthouse. The role was finally given to William Sadler, who arrived on set and had only 60 minutes to meet and form a relationship with Shia LaBeouf before their big emotional scene together. See more »

Oh, how I tried to love this movie. I was so emotionally invested in Project Greenlight, and although the directors seemed like idiots, they weren't evil idiots.
It turned out to be an okay movie, which is almost worse than being awful. There were a few laughs, but for the most part I didn't care about the characters in the movie nearly as much as the "characters" in Project Greenlight, and that is the problem that I have with it. If someone has to see Project Greenlight in order to care about the movie, then the movie failed.
