Storyline

GRINDIN' is an over the top comedy about T.O., a successful working actor who falls from Hollywood grace in the midst of livin' it up. With an inability to focus on his artistic pursuits, T.O. is constantly distracted by everything "fun under the sun." Surrounded by a cast of hilarious yet distracting characters and fearing he may never see the view from the top again, T.O. searches for the inspiration that will motivate him to once again unleash his talent and set the Hollywood scene on fire. T.O. learns that throughout it all, some things, like hard work and a will to triumph, will always remain the winning formula for success. Written by Lawrence B. Adisa

Disgustingly Homemade Quality
13 June 2008 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

If California regulated the quality of movies to a decent standard, then this movie certainly wouldn't even be allowed to be released. The quality of the movie is totally homemade quality - even the camera used is probably an over the counter unit.

The lead actor has an alienating face (mades you just want to stop watching) and has no talent. 9/10 actors on the movie have no talent (F -List) especially during the important scenes (crying, yelling, etc - totally unconvincing). I can't really remember Regina King on the movie, probably because she only appears for a few seconds.

I'm pretty sure the budget for this movie was under $50K (NO JOKE).
