Storyline

Charlie [Johnny Sneed] comes from a long line of storytellers from Muncie, Indiana. He left his Midwestern roots behind to fulfill his dream of becoming a big-time writer/director in Hollywood - but making it in Los Angeles is proving more difficult than he could have imagined. His most recent screenplay lands with a hollow thud and now his agent [Laurence Rosenthal] has served him notice, 'Bring me something I can sell. Otherwise, pack your bags, Charlie. You're back on the bus to Muncie.' And it only gets worse. The only directing job he can get is shooting wedding videos, his attempts to fit in at a Hollywood party are disastrous, and worst of all, a surprise meeting with Shannon Elizabeth [as herself] earns him a reputation in the tabloids as a sex-craved pervert. Now, Charlie will have to rely on the natural gifts of any Irish kid from the mid-west; a love of alcohol and the tradition of telling outrageously wild tall-tales. Based on a series of short stories by Emmy-winning ... Written by Anonymous

Smart, witty and funny
28 May 2009 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

I had the privileged of watching this film last night at the El Cid in Hollywood and I have to say I was greatly impressed.

I'm usually not one for the writer/artist trying to make it in the big city. Typically I find them cliché' but this was far from that. The filmic elements used; Voice-Over, talking to the camera, flashbacks were used in a manner that moved the story with great ease and although this could get tiresome the director does a great job of not letting that happen.

Charlie was your guy next door, easy to like and very relatible type of character but underneath you could tell there was more to him than a 2-dimentional character. I instantly connected with him, felt for him and found myself wanting him to succeed.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone who gets a chance to see it. GOOD JOB!!!!!
