He is harassed at work by his mentally challenged boss, while his nearly catatonic mother sits at home, addicted to televangelists and prescription drugs. Her monetary contribution to these TV "pastors" is draining them financially dry. Their family physician urges Shepherd to find his mother some excitement before she slips away. When Shepherd loses his job he hits the road with his mother and their two neighbors, Annamari-ah (Maria-Elena Laas) and her father (Danny Trejo), to attend the End Times Revival Event!Written by
A friend invited me to the WorldFest Houston film festival to see this film. Overall I really enjoyed it. There are truly some laugh out loud moments. I really liked the Dewey character. I literally laughed for 2-3 minutes after seeing him painting his toenails with white-out. I also think the interaction between Shepherd and Phil, especially early in the film, is classic funny.
This may not be Danny Trejo's most memorable role, but I think we was more than adequate as the straight man to Shepherd's goofiness.
There is a definite 'independent' vibe to the film, but not in a negative way. In fact, it's clean and professional in it's delivery. I'm looking forward to seeing it again, I get the feeling there is more funny in the film that I missed.
