It's been a rough couple of years for Alan Mangold, a tightly-wound professor in his 30's who dreams of a better life beyond his shoebox apartment... if only he could complete his opus, "Orphan Bastard." When his Nana dies, Alan and his better-half Amanda must post an internet ad at the university to find a student who will share the costs of the emergency cross-country trip. Enter Jeffie: an inflammatory individual who fancies himself a scholar, a poet, and the embodiment of enlightened living. At first, the couple's travel companion seems to have responded randomly to their ad, but as the trip progresses, it becomes clear that Jeffie's presence relates to a web of tightly-held secrets between Alan and Amanda. Amidst infidelity, blackmail, run-ins with the law, and a painfully bad demo tape, the ride with Jeffie is unpredictable at every turn and by journey's end no one is left unchanged.

Charming funny film
2 October 2011 | by amymoore333See all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2010 Phoenix Film Festival, in a packed theater. I liked it very much at the time and got a lot of laughs out of it, partly because I have known a couple of guys in my life who were every bit as weird and delusional as Jeffie. I've also known guys just like Alan, and I thought this film was a wonderful depiction of what might happen if you put those two personalities together on a road trip, where the only real sane voice of reason is Alan's girlfriend, who must feel like she's either a crazy person in a sane world or the only sane person in a crazy one. She keeps the film moving by keeping the two of them from killing each other.

The more intriguing part of this film for me is that it stuck with me. I think about it a lot and still chuckle about certain parts. I'd love to see it again as soon as they get distribution and I can buy a copy. Definitely one of my favorite films of the last two years of the festival.

I think it was very well cast and acted and I have nothing but love for all 3 main players. Don't miss this tasty little comedy!
