Storyline

Bill Williams is a down-and-out actor who is unexpectedly hired to write a sequel a la "True Lies," the action film that made him famous more than a decade ago. When Bill learns that his co-star is Aaron Roman, a rich kid with no acting experience, what appeared to be the chance for a major comeback turns into a series of outlandish complications. As the duo embark on a journey of outrageous misadventures, the unlikely pair discover that it takes more courage to face real life challenges than it does fighting bad guys on the big screen. Although Aaron may be inexperienced in acting, his tenacious spirit, unwavering optimism and unconditional friendship turns out to be an important, enduring gift to Bill. Written by Press Release (Wendy Morris PR)

Forest Gump Meets Hollywood
13 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dark comedy about a has-been actor and a kid with a disability would have been an impossible task had it not been for the brilliant screen writing by Tom Arnold and the amazing performances by both him and Eric Gomes. I walked into this movie thinking it would be another lame comedy about L.A. and was blindsided by an extraordinary experience. The movie is about love and friendship and compassion. I laughed and I cried. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the premiere of this film at the AFI film festival in L.A. and got a chance to meet the filmmakers. I was lucky enough to tell them something I would rarely tell an actor, producer, or director. What I said was, "Thank you for making such a beautiful movie."
