Storyline

In the Biggest Little City in the World, Reno Nevada, lives a lovable loser, Harold James Clark. He's reaching for the stars while he searches for love and hopes to live his dream of becoming full time manager at the Wagontrain Steakhouse. Harold's assistant manager status already leaves him feeling lucky. Harold looks at a half filled glass and is simply amazed that there is even a glass. This Elvis wannabe finally meets his dream girl, Wanda Livingston. She's just run away from Vegas and her 80's rocker boyfriend, Jake Salamander. Never-mind her lack of waitressing skills, Harold gets her a job at the Wagontrain anyhow, and shows her the ropes. When Jake shows up in Reno Wanda decides to give him another chance. Meanwhile, Harold and Wanda become close real fast. Too close for Wanda. Not close enough for Harold. He's in Love... And ready to pop the question. Written by Gordon Michaels

Sweet and unusual romcom reminding of early Wenders and Lynch
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Unbeatable Harold at the ISIS theater in Aspen in March 2006 during the HBO festival. I enjoyed the film a lot. Nicole DeHuff is radiant. She reminded me of a David Lynch Mulholland drive type character. Imagine Naomi Watts from Lynch's film falling in love almost against her will with Wenders' Paris Texas Harry Dean Stanton: you get Unbeatable Harold. While this couple brings most of the emotions and the inspiration in the film, the assemble cast brings most of the fun: old timers like Durning and Winkler cross the path of younger actors like Taryn Manning of Hustle and Flow and Dylan McDermott, hilarious as a fallen rock star performing heavy metal covers of "The Greatest Love of All" on the Nevada "hotel" circuit... The film is a portrait of a series of American losers, of all ages and in all fields, filmed with great love and tenderness. After laughing at them, I started feeling for them and left the theater full of joy and understanding... I was shocked to read in the ending credits that the main actress Nicole DeHuff passed away after they filmed the film.
