Storyline

In Los Angeles, three guys with limited social lives hatch a plan to meet women: they'll issue a casting call for an independent film, interview actresses, and ask out the ones who interest them. Glenn is a nerd, but he has the office. Sherman has the idea - he's a hound, happy to lie, eager to meet and bed as many women as he can fool. Richie, who owns the camera, hopes to meet his true love. Within a few days, he's fallen for Marina Dell, new in town, with a boyfriend back east; Glenn is ga-ga for Laurel, and Sherman can't say no to the eager and adventurous Nikita. But how long can they sustain the fiction, and what about real feelings? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A fake casting agency goes awry when the goods they are to deliver appear not to exist
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very funny comedy that will appeal to most adults, I thought Diedrich Bader, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Johnathen Winters stood out in the movie with their very keen senses of humor. Paul Mazursky played the perfect overbearing hapless judge, overall just a great supporting cast, a lot of laughs from beginning to end! The storyline is completely believable in that a desperate guy played by Thomas Ian Nicholas aided by his good buddies that he also convinces to assist him and themselves,{they don't need to much convincing mind you} to cook up a scheme to "meet as many women/girls as possible, by putting advertisements in the paper and creating a fake casting call for a movie that really doesn't exist! A person definitely gets the sense that this cooked up idea may have been attempted in the past by " guys looking to meet and date as many women as they can". Ask any producer or director and they will tell you that casting calls routinely can draw literally hundreds if not thousands of people that want to audition for parts.I have seen most of the National Lampoons and this rates up there for believability,acting skills, realism and humor. At the premiere I happened to sit next to a very well known "movie critic" and for what it's worth he gave it "two thumbs up"!!! "A MUST SEE SLEEPER COMEDY THAT WILL BE COMING OUT IN THE THEATRES IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 07 !!!!!!!!!!!!!1
