Storyline

Rodger Keaton is a socially challenged, clinically frigid, computer nerd, desperate single white male. Patricia Bartlett is a ruthless award winning journalist who has found her man. Pitted against overwhelming odds, Hollywood makeover Guru Brad Holloway is blackmailed via the threat of crippling publicity. Brad's challenge is a "mission impossible" makeover and he must prove with substantial results that his Ultimate Makeover Services are the 'Real Deal'. Over the next six weeks, Brad & Rodger take a most unlikely journey into often uncharted terrain, with hilarious & heart warming results at every turn. But can true change be given a deadline? And can anything with a deadline be thoroughly achieved? A willing dog can learn a thousand new tricks, but is self-identity a trick? Can it be learnt, or must it be found? Join Rodger on a roller coaster of fear, anxiety, disaster, celebration, discovery, reinvention & hope as he hurtles toward the finishing line in this race against time. Written by anonymous

Terrible
8 August 2011 | by vcheckSee all my reviews

I'm not quite sure what this movie wanted to be about.. Pseudo documentary? A romance with character development? A tale of morale? There is a bit of everything but none of the plots are followed through enough for me to care. Mostly sub-standard acting and strange side plots are all over this film, the whole thing seems rather like a bad television production than something for the silk screen. Character motivation is almost non-existent throughout the story, I'm unsure why do they act a certain way or another. All-in-all this seems to be a rather loose flick with a hidden (or not so hidden) feminist agenda packaged as a feature film. A few interesting comedy moments save this piece from being a total waste of time.
