Storyline

A PR specialist refuses to market a car called a "Howard" - a colossal error that loses him a billion dollars and makes him a national joke. He loses his hair, shaves his beard, takes a new name, and moves to Martha's Vineyard. Jump ten years: "Rolly" is a popular local whose sangfroid evaporates when the Howard's inventor moves to the island. Rolly, his old self unrecognizable, hatches a plan to rid the island of his nemesis; he also decides to woo the billionaire's wife. Fellatio, a former girlfriend, a woman who's lost weight, her boyfriend, the band Chicago, a menacing Chechen, a bus load of ill children, and a pair of ne'er-do-wells with experience with explosives figure in the story.

Trivia

The three co-writers of this TV movie--partners Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer-- all wrote for Seinfeld (1989), then later co-directed the 2004 film EuroTrip (2004). They became infamous for the way they decided on who should get the solo directing credit on that movie--by drawing the name from the hat. See more »

Goofs

In the restaurant booth when Rolly presses his friend for the construction job, the key for the wallbox juke selector can be seen sticking out the right side. It's unlikely the key would be left in it normally. See more »

Absolutely hilarious
14 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a whole bunch of comedic talent assembled for this original and hilarious HBO movie - it's a must see. It is funnier than many big budget feature film comedies. The jokes are so frequent it's sometimes easy to miss some of them. Larry David (unrecognizable at first) plays an obnoxious man involved in a start up electric car company. He cashes out just before the big success. Jon Hamm plays the company's boss.

Standouts in the cast include the always funny Eva Mendez, the not often seen enough Michael Keaton, and the surprisingly hilarious Liev Schreiber doing a Chechen character. They are all so good in comedy.

Attractive setting in Martha's Vineyard.

Hope HBO starts making more excellent movie length comedies like this one.
