Storyline

Jake Klein, 50, sets out to make a movie. He hires an actor to play himself and throws a big party. His idea is to shoot the heck out of it and see what he gets. But, everything spins out of control as different, unexpected people show up. Old loves are there. New loves are there. His dead father, his mother when she was young, his kids, his ex-wife. Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life. Jake's head reels as he staggers through what's either a mystical experience, a nervous breakdown... or both! Written by Jake Squared LLC

Jake Squared ( heart icon ) !!!
23 August 2014 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of small movies. This was a big small one. I enjoyed the self-deprecation as well as Jake's lofty love ambitions. It reminded me of all the constant verbal noise inside my own head, but from a different gender and profession. And funny. I wish I was as humorous when I'm hard on myself. I bet most of the audience relates to this, which could be why there were huge laughs in the theater throughout the film at the screening I went to. And thank you Mr. Goldberg for making a movie for us middle aged people here in "Youngstown U.S.A" aka Los Angeles. Gen Xers can enjoy Vogel and the hot tub girls, but I especially enjoyed Koteas and the seasoned actresses. Loved it!
