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

I wasn't disappointed
26 April 2002 | by RaleonSee all my reviews

I was mislead at first because both BellVu and the comments on this board made it sound like Tom Green had a big part when he really had a small role in which he acts like he usually does. Mind you, it was very funny, but I'm not a huge Tom Green fan, only really liking some of his work.

But David Hewlett is a fine actor. I found Clutch amusing and interesting. The whole thing about the book turning its readers into zombies and then making them realize things about themselves was pretty cool, though I guess that part is open to many interpretations. It's well worth watching, as long as you're not looking for Tom Green.
