Storyline

A dejected futon salesman competes with a cocky co-worker to win a mini-marathon and score a coveted assistant manager position in the store where they both work. Fran Molon specializes in futons, but everyone in his small town has their mind set on mattresses. With a mini-marathon fast approaching, Fran's colleague suggests that they compete to see who can get the fastest time, and allow the winner to become the new assistant manager. Before long, Fran is training around the clock. Does he possess the drive and endurance to cross the finish line first, or is he forever doomed to be the red-headed stepchild of the furniture business. Written by ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

A fantastic independent comedy that is well written and fun to watch!
28 June 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A hilarious comedy! "The Mini"'s humor may be compared to that of "Napoleon Dynamite" or "Office Space" only with lighter, funnier, and quirkier characters. Certainly not a complicated movie, "The Mini"'s story moves fast and keeps your interest from opening titles to ending credits. It is a heartwarming film where acting and writing come together seamlessly.

I saw this film at the Big Island Film Festival and had the opportunity to meet the producers. For their first full length feature this independent film's quality is astounding considering what a small budget it was made with.

"The Mini" is a fun movie that is easy to watch and is enjoyable for any age group.
