Storyline

With the plug about to be pulled on his late night talk show after a fifteen year run, and his wife engaged in a steamy affair with a pro baseball star, host Jack West is desperate - to keep aflame his fading celebrity, and avenge the misdeeds of his adulterous spouse. With the clock ticking, Jack concocts the mother of all media stunts, killing two birds with one unforgettable stone on the road to redemption. The scheme entangles an eclectic collection of colorful locals navigating their way through unpredictable twists and turns. A plump private eye teams with a macabre webmistress to investigate the strange disappearance of a dead body. A glassy-eyed cheddar head falls prey to a phony get-rich-quick guru. Imperiled actors embark on a quest for a fresh corpse. Cops in costume, a peculiar special effects make-up team, porn stars with dreams of stardom, a Jewish drug lord with very large brothers, Russian mobsters and others converge in this unique roller-coaster ride of comedy, ...

A reasonably good indy film with some big name actors that had nothing better to do.
11 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remarkable Power is an interesting indie film that brings together several very disparate stories and neatly ties them together for the climax. Through most of the film it felt like I was watching two movies, most of the stories come together in two separate arcs early on but do not intersect until the end. In retrospect I really should have figured out what was happening sooner, but I was a little slow on this one.

Kevin Nealon plays an aging late night talk show host who is about to be canned by the network, his wife is having an affair, and he knows about it because he has hired a Private Investigator (Tom Arnold) to follow her around. The second storyline involves a burnout loser (Evan Peters) who meets a failed actor (Kip Pardue) that happens to be in a self help video he purchased while stoned late at night. There is a fight, someone dies, a girl shows up, drug dealers are looking for money, and Russian mafia are looking for a body. As I said, several stories that are seemingly independent come together in a clever way. If you have a free space in your Netflix queue fill it with Remarkable Power, it's a good wast of time.
