Storyline

A nerd is harassed by punks, and is the object of ridicule at work. Enamoured by a co-worker, he buys a tape series on how to be cool, summons up his nerve, and goes to the co-worker's house, only to find her in the clutches of another co-worker. Dejected, he goes out on the town and parties with some babes, but when their friends, who turn out to be the same punks that harassed him earlier, trash him again something snaps, and the irritants in his life begin experiencing an attrition problem.

Most enjoyably quotable film ever
11 August 2005 | by tabuuSee all my reviews

this movie is just so good, just hearing the ridiculous dialog spoken by Toby Radloff, is enough to make this one of the best films ever, my friends and i watch this film repeatedly, we all have our Toby impressions down and quote it incessantly, such great quotes, "I've got a tiger by the tale, and he's mean." "How'm I gonna choke on pie?" "Roses are red, violets are placid, you screwed me over have a face full of acid." "Do you think I don't know what I am? I'm a nerd,I'm different, people perceive me as being different, I hate myself." and well pretty much any line spoken by Toby. its just the most fun movie ever. One time we got him to come to our college and host a benefit concert, he really is much the same in real life as he is in the movie, this is not acting, this is just him being him, and whoever decided to video tape him was a genius, this is a great cult film and more people need to be aware of it
