A miserable conman and his partner pose as Santa and his Little Helper to rob department stores on Christmas Eve. But they run into problems when the conman befriends a troubled kid, and the security boss discovers the plot.
Billy Bob Thornton,
Starting from childhood attempts at illustration, the protagonist pursues his true obsession to art school. But as he learns how the art world really works, he finds that he must adapt his vision to the reality that confronts him.
With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
This is the 'making-of' of one of the most over-rated 'slice-of-life movies of my lifetime. The cast talk about the obvious stuff and it doesn't illuminate how any of this movie would be adored by such 'intullectual' morons. They go on and on about how great every other of the members of the cast are. I hate making-ofs that feel like a celluloid circle jerk. And thus I don't really like this one. Plus I just plain don't like the film "Ghost World" as it's pretentious, self-serving, unfunny and boring. This 11 minute featurette can be located on the DVD special edition of the movie "Ghost World"
