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

What a fantastic film with a wonderful cast
20 June 2006 | by dimondgrl2006See all my reviews

I recently saw Unbeatable Harold at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan.

This film I must say blew me away. I didn't know what to expect going in because I wasn't familiar with Gordon Michaels who plays the lead role of Harold. Well let me tell you he is awesome as Harold. So funny and original talent sure to become a star. And so handsome. And he wrote the screenplay. I will never miss any of his future films. Hard to describe this film because it's so original. Performances by Dylan McDermott, Henry Winkler, Gladys Knight, and even Phyllis Diller were really great. Dylan Mcdermott has never been better. He plays a washed up 80's rocker. Didn't know he was that funny. I feel really lucky to be a part of the sell out crowd of 500 people that night. I haven't heard that many people laugh so much since I saw Wedding Crashers. This film has a lot of heart and was so much fun. I'm sure it will make it to the theaters and I've been telling everybody. If you are looking for a film that will take you out of your head for a while, touch your heart, and will make you laugh, and boy will you laugh, don't miss Unbeatable Harold.
