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.

Goes nowhere, slowly.
9 October 2008 | by (Saitama, Japan) – See all my reviews

Two naive struggling Los Angeles actors spend a day looking for jobs after their landlord threatens eviction if their rent isn't payed by evening.

This "comedy" isn't just unfunny, it's boring. The two leads bumble through a succession of awkwardly-edited scenes, some of which the director continues to cut back to even after the main characters have left. What plot that does exist is just a framework upon which to hang more scenes of the two leads bantering back and forth.

The acting isn't too bad, with decent enough performances by Godfrey, James Leary, director Dale Stelly, and Mercedes Scelba-Shorte. But this movie goes nowhere slowly and you will regret renting it. Avoid... unless you're a family member of someone involved with this turkey.

(I did laugh one time - and only one time - at one of Dex's lines in the unemployment office.)
