Imagine that at the age of 4, you dream of becoming a filmmaker. Imagine that by the age of 24, you decide to live your dream. Now imagine that you have no money, no real actors, and no equipment. How would you make your film? Would you hire friends to star in your film, max out credit cards to rent equipment, and attempt to shoot a 96-page script in 6 days? Filmmaker Chris Suchorsky did just that. What was the end result? Complete and total disaster. So what do you do when your dream fails? You make a film about being a FAILURE. Written by Jen Grimm

What a refreshing piece of material!
14 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This overly honest portrayal of a hopeful filmmaker's journey is not only hilarious but touching and entertaining on so many levels. It's excellent for those couch potato's waiting for life to start, and just might make you get off your a$$ and start living the life you should. This director is talented, whether he realizes it or not while making this film, it's irrelevant - he has the audience interested and on his side from the beginning. We all want him to finish his movie and you can't help but to root for him! The hurdles he faces are ones we all can relate to and the friends and actors he works with are all personalities we all know too well (including the humping dog). This director is the next Kevin Smith/Zach Braff, no question. A must see for aspiring actors, filmmakers, or those who just can't get their a$$ off the couch to finish anything! WATCH IT!!!
