Storyline

Brendan and Gavin are lifelong friends who feel comfortable with fame and international adoration. Even though they haven't achieved it yet. They're just like any other small town guys - they enjoy playing in a band, reviewing book reviews and busting mad sickness whenever they can. They also have brand new jobs in advertising. Unfortunately their world falls apart after they lose their jobs, a day before their ten-year school reunion - a day they've dreamt about for, well, ten years. Written by Anon

Absolute rubbish
12 June 2009 | by jackvsSee all my reviews

The only way that anyone enjoyed this movie, or found it remotely amusing, was by being so drugged out of their mind that they were actually laughing at the stage curtains moving in the breeze.

Bad, bad, bad, in Malories immortal words! Damn right that the only place money got spent was on the marketing - it was the only way they could get people into the movie house.

This entirely justifies the pirating of movies - it's actually criminal to expect people to pay to be exposed to this drivel! Do not rent this movie - rather convince your worst enemy to do so, in fact steal a copy and post it to him.
