Storyline

Joel, the owner of an extract manufacturing plant, constantly finds himself in precarious situations that steadily worsen by the minute. First, his soon-to-be floor manager acquires a serious injury in a machine malfunctioning accident that subsequently endangers the wellbeing of his company. Second, his personal life doesn't fair much better when he takes the advice of his bartending friend Dean during a drug-induced brainstorming session on how to test his wife's faithfulness. Finally, compounding these catastrophes is new employee Cindy, who happens to be a scam artist intent on milking the company for all its worth. Now, Joel must attempt to piece his company and his marriage back together all while trying to figure out what he's really after in life. Written by The Massie Twins

Guitar Salesman #2: Yeah, it's expensive, but it's sweet. Yeah.
Guitar Salesman #1: Are you familiar with Gibson humbucking pickups at all, or...
Cindy: No, I'm sorry. I actually don't play. It's for my dad for his 50th birthday.
Guitar Salesman #1: That's, that's really sweet.
Cindy: Yeah, my sisters and I are all chipping in, so...
Guitar Salesman #2: Your dad will love these humbuckings. I mean, they really kick ass.

A stupid business owner deals with all the stupid people around him while making stupid choices of his own
7 November 2011 | by drosent105See all my reviews

An utterly stupid movie about how utterly stupid and meaningless most peoples' lives are. The people who made this movie under the pretense of a comedy ended up making a tragedy. If this is the state of American cinema, then we are doomed. There are some movies that are so bad that they are worth seeing simply for their shock value as to how bad a movie can be. Bu then there are those that make you feel like you have completely wasted your time. Like you have just lost an hour and a half of your life that you will never get back and you feel gipped and taken advantage of. This is one of those movies. I can't imagine spending money to see this (it was a library rental) otherwise I would have lost not only time but hard earned cash as well.

There are no redeeming qualities to this piece of trash, except for, and this is a big maybe, Gene Simmons (former member of Kiss) in a ridiculous cameo. He was a caricature when in Kiss, and a caricature now. But at least he knows it. The other actors, decent actors, have no excuse. C'mon people, we can do so much better than spending millions making movies like this. Bad jokes, bad plot line, bad stereotypes, etc.

Or maybe it is the end of civilization and there's no turning back. Shame on the actors for buying into this wretched script. You have been warned.
