Storyline

Lenny and Abbott are garbage truck drivers who service the homes of movie stars in Beverly Hills and Hollywood. They deal with the likes of Daryl Hannah, William Baldwin and Ben Stiller on daily basis. During a routine landfill trip, they discover Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Jerry Maguire (1996)". As they trace their steps back to Cuba's house, wondering how the Oscar got in the trash, the news breaks out in the media and they become overnight celebrities. As they get sucked into the Hollywood scene and celebrity world, Lenny starts to dream big and loses it completely when he sees his dreams go up in smoke, while jeopardizing his friendship with Abbott, their jobs and their lives.

Trivia

Hero garbage truck was rented from a yard of decommissioned service vehicles in Sacramento, but the actors never got a chance to drive it in the film. Trick photography, "stunt" drivers and a replicated cabin built inside of a "Budget" rental truck were used to create an impression that the guys are actually driving it. See more »

Never Quites Hits the Mark
10 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two garbage truck drivers in Hollywood become celebrities overnight after they find Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Jerry Maguire" and suddenly their lives go topsy-turvy.

I loved how this was such a novel concept, and made me wonder: who really collects celebrity trash? Whoever is in that position could easily use it to their advantage. Now, they are not going to find an Oscar, most likely, but they might be aware that Billy Baldwin eats a lot more fish sticks than the average person.

Unfortunately in this case, the film never fully takes off. There are some good moments and a few key cameos, but the overall arc is a low one. I feel like there could have been a little bit more going on, a bit more zaniness. Oh well. At least we got Michael Madsen.
