Storyline

With the plug about to be pulled on his late night talk show after a fifteen year run, and his wife engaged in a steamy affair with a pro baseball star, host Jack West is desperate - to keep aflame his fading celebrity, and avenge the misdeeds of his adulterous spouse. With the clock ticking, Jack concocts the mother of all media stunts, killing two birds with one unforgettable stone on the road to redemption. The scheme entangles an eclectic collection of colorful locals navigating their way through unpredictable twists and turns. A plump private eye teams with a macabre webmistress to investigate the strange disappearance of a dead body. A glassy-eyed cheddar head falls prey to a phony get-rich-quick guru. Imperiled actors embark on a quest for a fresh corpse. Cops in costume, a peculiar special effects make-up team, porn stars with dreams of stardom, a Jewish drug lord with very large brothers, Russian mobsters and others converge in this unique roller-coaster ride of comedy, ...

A Little Silly But Still Entertaining
27 October 2019 | by GlenjaminXSee all my reviews

A lot of notable performers took part in this black comedy, and overall I'd say it worked. I especially liked Tom Arnold's character. For the most part the story moved along nicely and there were a couple of surprises. Not a big budget production, but it didn't pretend to be. I loved that the movie ended with a song by Public Image Limited, and I enjoyed the film.
