The worst thing about Wendell (Adam Bowers) isn't his slightly balding head, skinny frame, or thin lips; it's that he's a bit of an idiot. He just started dating Vicky (Jayme Ratzer), an angry drunk, who conveniently shares his lack of ambition and cleanliness. But he might prefer a relationship with Joanna (Valerie Jones) because she's a selfless social worker who doesn't have lip acne. Eventually, Wendell is going to have to decide who he really belongs with: the best girl he's ever known-or the worst. Written by
Though a low-budget movie about an oddball romantic relationship is hardly original, this one has very funny deadpan acting and dialogue, and the characters, while outlandish, come across as more authentic than merely "quirky" as we've come to expect. Adam Bowers is like a talkative Tramp, though maybe that is going too far, and he has strong support from Turner and Ratzer who play his buddy and love interest with great comic timing and humanity. Of course the plot isn't meant to go anywhere, and doesn't really, at least not anywhere that I can decipher. I suspect the project completion was rushed or incompletely conceived, which is to be expected. And while the production is competent there are some flaws that remind you how many beers this thing cost to make. But on the whole a quite entertaining display of talent.
