Storyline

On the eve of his 50th birthday Jimmy W finds himself at the cross roads of his existence. For him it's now or never. The time has come to become rich and maybe even famous. Pretending to be an American Producer, he offers his services to the St-Tite Rodeo to develop an ad campaign to attract American tourists. Charmed as much by his demeanor as well as by his proposition, the Rodeo organizers call him in for a meeting to present his project. The meeting turns out to be a complete fiasco. Suspicious about Jimmy, they politely turn him down. Jimmy returns home furious and determined to get his revenge. Operating from his kitchen, he plans an elaborate scheme to extort the beer stock from the Rodeo valued at a quarter of million dollars. Written by PR

Nice touch.
18 July 2007 | by boucher-jeromeSee all my reviews

This movie shows that you don't need a gigantic pile of money to make a good movie. Sauvé made it with a couple of HandyCam and an awesome scenario that blends documentary to fiction. In fact, if you're not aware of the fact it's actually a fiction (like many of my friends when they saw it), you can very well think it's a shocking documentary.

The sound is, let's be honest, absolutely awful. Of course, you can't really get it right when you work with a HandyCam. But on a creative side, I can't give that movie less than 9/10.

You got to love James Weber (who keeps his real name in the movie) playing that real low-life lazy guy so well. You also have to appreciate that Sauvé reunited the whole Weber family for the film just so it reaches a maximum of realism.
