In L.A., Maurice and Dave sell steaks - high-end cuts of beef. They've hit a patch of no sales, and they're facing being fired. Maurice needs money to enroll in his final semester of acupuncture school, and the recently-separated Dave needs money for his daughter's birthday gift. Their final client card: a beautiful woman opens the door, and she's attracted to Maurice, but a desperate call from a suicidal friend interrupts her signing the contract. Still hoping to close the sale, Maurice and Dave offer to drive her to the friend's house, and there, troubles multiply. Facing guns, hitmen, and women's secrets, a sale is the farthest thing from their minds. Are they about to be grilled?Written by

After losing one of the yellow lead cards out the window, they pull over and look for it and a semi drives by and knocks the side view mirror off the drivers side door next seen its intact again, then when they show up to the last leads house its off again. See more »
Grilled is a dark comedy about two meat salesmen that run into problems as they try and sell people bulk meat subscriptions. They fall into the wrong crowd and are faced with getting some subscriptions or die trying. The whole scenario is pretty depressing, but the stars do an adequate job of turning the problems into humor. I waited a month for the DVD to return to the rental store, it was always out of stock, which promised a good show that didn't really materialize for me. I guess I like each of these actors in their respective TV comedies, but there wasn't that much chemistry between them on the same screen. Good for a few laughs, solid acting, good camera work, but over all not that great.
