Storyline

Martyn, an aging Toronto area college student with no degree yet to show for his so far ten years in college, has agreed to do an illegal job solely for the money: steal a rare book from Richard, an antiquarian. In the process, Martyn ends up accidentally killing Richard. Not knowing what to do about the dead body, Martyn decides to take it along with the book. He drops the body off with his straight-laced brother, Larry, and his slightly off-kilter online-obsessed roommate, Spit, who agree - reluctantly on Larry's part - to dispose of the body for him. Spit believes he has an ingenious way to get rid of Richard without anyone ever finding the body, which goes against Larry's moral sensibilities. Meanwhile, Martyn tries to get the book to the ruthless people who hired him, but runs into car trouble along the way. This delay is enough for those who want the book to come after Martyn. In the process, Martyn meets Theresa, the mechanic working on the car, who may provide him with a ... Written by Huggo

Damn misleading ExpressVu description...
21 April 2002 | by Kiyone_MabiSee all my reviews

I saw this at 2 a.m. on Canada's Movie Network the other night. I only watched it because Tom Green was one of the top 3 billed stars in the description of the film that appeared on Bell ExpressVu when you press the INFO button. But, for the few of you like myself who actually appreciated FREDDY GOT FINGERED who maybe found the CLUTCH page at IMDB because you looked up "Tom Green" and wanted to watch one of his earlier films, from before he did SUPERSTAR and ROAD TRIP, my advice is, don't go out of your way to seek this movie out. He's only in one scene where he says (paraphrasing from memory) "You can't read that here! This place is for computers! This isn't for books! This is for computers, not books!" and so on. (If you have eagle eyes, you will also notice that one of the shows on television later in the film is the episode of Tom Green where he goes to Barbados or somewhere like that.) By comparison, Gordon "PJ Gord from YTV" Michael Woolvett (Seamus from ANDROMEDA) is in a helluva lot of scenes, but ExpressVu didn't mention him at all.
