Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.
When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
Eccentric Jeffrey Mannus is 29 years old and still lives at home with his mom, Jan. He sees no reason to alter this arrangement, but his perfect world is upended when Jan meets Mert, a motivational speaker. Mert successfully woos Jan and moves in on Jeffrey's territory, something Jeffrey will not tolerate. Jeffrey enlists the aid of an unlikely ally, an aspiring singer-songwriter, Nora, with an anti-establishment penchant and a soft spot for him. As the war between Mert and Jeffrey escalates, something unprecedented happens -- slowly, to both his own surprise and horror, Jeffrey discovers his inner adult. Written by
There is a scene filmed at the Burbank location of PC Club, a small computer chain that at once was nationwide but went bankrupt in July 2008. See more »
In the scene when Nora drops Jeffrey off after coming back from Arizona, just as he punches the air in rage and the camera backs up, the camera's movement backwards disturbs a plant in the bottom of the shot. See more »
Keaton, Daniels, and Wallach must be so happy no one saw this 'film'.
Just my opinion, (or maybe not after reading all the horrible reviews here), but time is precious and I can not believe I wasted my time watching this film. I'll bet you Keaton, Daniels and Wallach regret doing it and wasting their time just as much. ( Although being I don't know anyone that even heard this 'film', maybe they just quietly let it slide.) How does Hollywood make this stuff? Terrible production. Is anyone supervising the (lack of) creativity? It looks as though it was a real low budget film, but then again you have higher priced actors in it. Normally I like well made low budget films, but I guess the low budget look here is really just the bad filmmaking. Guess Hollywood should concentrate on actually making better films, not just starring get higher priced talent to star in them.
