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 <>

Quirky and very very funny
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did a fake casting of a movie when I was in college. It totally worked. I met tons of girls. I'm freaked out someone made a movie about it. I'm sure others have done this too. I wonder if the writer-director Martin Guigui lived it...Diedrich Bader is hilarious! "Cattle Call" is the funniest National Lampoon film I have seen since "Van Wilder". I heard they're making a sequel. I'd love to sneak onto that set. Chelsea Handler is a good actress. She should do more films. The actress Jenny Molen that played Marina is awesome. I heard she married Jason Biggs recently. I hope she's in the sequel. She was the best thing about "Cattle Call". There are a few very funny memorable scenes. One that I keep remembering is when the character of Sherman Oaks (played by Andrew Katos) thinks he is playing a great guitar solo, but he sucks and then Chelsea Handler still wants to have sex with him. The film reminds me of "Spinal Tap" sometimes. I rented if from Netflix and then I bought it so I can relive it, my past that is...
