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 »

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 »
I loved this movie and think Jeff Daniels was funny, Jon Heder was cute and funny as heck and I have been a HUGE Diane Keaton fan since "Baby Boom" and she is the best actress in the whole world. The cast was perfect and the movie was funny and helpful to those old soul's that still live off mommy or daddy. LOL. Time to move on! I think there needs to be more movies like this made. Jon Heder continues to prove to be a wonderful actor and a funny man Diane Keaton will make movies forever and her and Jeff make a wonderful couple for movies like this and have great chemistry, clearly!! I am glad I went out and bought this movie and told everyone about it. In this day and age, we all need a good laugh and this movie did it for me and my family and friends. The sad thing is that with the economy, older children/adults might have to live back at home so here's to them! ~~Darcy~~
