Storyline

Thank you Geary, an aspiring hood/late shift donut fryer, is guilt-trapped by his crotchety one-armed Uncle Earl into faking his own death. His reluctant assent sets into motion a half-assed scheme to fleece the Gerber Baby life insurance company and provide Earl the funds to escort his supafly girlfriend Sheena to Kalapana-Puna to see the bottlenose dolphins. When the corpse they use to fake Geary's death turns out to be a late, but beloved, lieutenant of the local Jewish crime lord, all doody breaks loose! Written by Jared Tweedie

A New Kinda Film Noir
2 September 2004 | by FilmNoirBuffSee all my reviews

This film is a step in the right direction. A new kinda film noir, something old but something new. I got a chance to preview this film a couple weeks ago, we got a screener copy at the festival that I am interning for.

It's like Orson Welles meets Kevin Smith, with a little Wes Anderson thrown in for the hell of it. This film is definitely unique to say the least.

The story follows Uncle Earl and his Nephew Geary. They are on a mission to find a body and fake Geary's death, which Geary does not want to do, but then again, it is his Uncle Earl.

This is a short film and I don't want to give away the story, but it is worth watching over and over. The characters in this film are priceless.

From the leads to the cameos, they are all rememberable.
