Storyline

In the Biggest Little City in the World, Reno Nevada, lives a lovable loser, Harold James Clark. He's reaching for the stars while he searches for love and hopes to live his dream of becoming full time manager at the Wagontrain Steakhouse. Harold's assistant manager status already leaves him feeling lucky. Harold looks at a half filled glass and is simply amazed that there is even a glass. This Elvis wannabe finally meets his dream girl, Wanda Livingston. She's just run away from Vegas and her 80's rocker boyfriend, Jake Salamander. Never-mind her lack of waitressing skills, Harold gets her a job at the Wagontrain anyhow, and shows her the ropes. When Jake shows up in Reno Wanda decides to give him another chance. Meanwhile, Harold and Wanda become close real fast. Too close for Wanda. Not close enough for Harold. He's in Love... And ready to pop the question. Written by Gordon Michaels

An Unfortunate Pile Of Poo.
12 June 2009 | by CryptoGuySee all my reviews

This was the worst movie I have ever seen. I say that without exaggeration. The film failed to focus. I couldn't even tell you what it was about. It's best described as an 1 1/2 hour long montage of first draft jokes. I've never been so disappointed in a film. I went to the premiere and wanted to walk out. The main character, Harold, didn't really have an established goal in mind. Harold wandered from one thing to the next and I kept hoping that he would settle on a goal. Thirty minutes into it, I realized it wasn't going to happen. They introduced a new plot line! It was torture.

This was a SAG low budget film and the production was good, but the script wandered and the characters fell flat. Winkler and McDermott couldn't save it. Gladys Knight and Phyllis Diller didn't have a chance. The Unbeatable Harold will get his butt beat at the box office.
