Taylor Brandon Burns, a conflicted twelve-year-old TV star from the U.S., runs away from the set - and his problems - while shooting a big-budget film in Canada. His reluctant limo-driver, Rick Schiller, a down-on-his-luck indie filmmaker, is enlisted to find Taylor before the childstar destroys himself. Written by
When Rick is taking Taylor out on the town in Toronto to help him gain experience with women, initially they are driving northbound on Yonge Street, a few blocks north of Eglinton (as evidenced by the HMV location next to Toys 'R' Us; these two stores are part of the Yonge-Eglinton Centre). Shortly afterward, they are at a cafe called Il Gatto Nero, which is at College and Crawford, a few blocks east of Ossington - and several kilometres to the SOUTHwest of the Yonge and Eglinton area.

I had no clue what to expect out of this film. I just heard good things about the director's previous "Last Night", so that being unavailable to me at the moment I decided to catch this one instead as it was readily available for free on Sundance on Demand. Thankfully so, as I would've definitely not have paid for this heavily clichéd, trite and towards the end overly pretentious 'little film that couldn't'. Boiling down to a lame road movie, this film about a spoiled prepubescent actor who runs of while filming a movie in Canada. suffers from sub-par writing as well as hack-eyed performances, most notably from Don McKeller himself (coming off as an eighth-rate Peter Sellers). In summation, Don't bother with this film as it will be wasted time on your part.
My Grade: D-
