Two wannabes decide they're sick and tired of trying to make a name for themselves the old-fashioned way. Terrance is trying to make it as a rock star, while Theo dreams of getting his first book published: 'Truck Stop Hustler,' a racy look at life on the streets as a junkie prostitute. After a string of humiliations by both publishers and music critics, the two hatch a plan to turn Theo's fictional book into an autobiography by having Terrance dress up as the story's protagonist, KK Downey, and claim all the events as having happened to him. All of a sudden the book nobody wanted becomes an overnight literary sensation, and Terrance has realized his dream of becoming famous. But at what price? Written by Anonymous

Art Imitating life with googly eyes
12 December 2009 | by kaput450See all my reviews

I just watched this movie tonight and felt compelled to give it a positive review. Even though I am a few years older than the characters in this movie the art fag gaze magazine and self righteous cliques hit home. This film made me laugh out loud several times. It gets so ridiculous with the Cosby show namesake to the mental flashbacks to the family relationships that you can't help but laugh. The acting is not great and the whole thing is far from believable but I am sure was not meant to be. I think the folks responsible for this film could have a bright future. I think I need to see this movie again. Could defiantly become a cult classic if enough people give it a chance.
