Storyline

Jamal and Dex are two hapless out of work actors who come to terms with reality when they realize they've been pursuing their dreams for over ten years and still haven't booked a single speaking role. When the two run out of cash and face eviction from their small apartment, they hit the pavement in search of a job. With no job experience, no skill set and little ambition, the audience gets a front row seat to this hilarious journey in which these two bad-luck prone losers can't seem to catch a break.

Wouldn't watch unless you are unemployed
8 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking to kill yourself with boredom then this movies for you! Thought I might laugh at least once... guess I was wrong... the filming and acting were bearable, but the script was lacking. If you have time to waste then feel free to try watching this movie...
