A team of investigative documentarians set out to follow the making of a late night, made-for-television Mature Movie, to capture an inside look at mainstream American movie practices and sensibilities at their lowest. Along the way they unexpectedly meet Armondo Jones, Bill Williams, and their 'crew of friends;' all first time Mature Movie makers who find themselves in a desperate struggle against their employers to bring social value to The Lone Rancher, a soft-core epic period piece they've been hired to write, direct and co-produce. As the production spins out of control, the team of friends sidesteps the studios contractual demands of sex and nuance, risking their jobs, in a game of cat-and-mouse, scraping to protect the 'important' love story they believe The Lone Rancher can provide.

Well written, thoughtful and funny!
26 October 2011 | by jaconsettaSee all my reviews

This film is awesome. The writing is tight and clever. It is a hilarious look into the world of film making. I highly recommend it. Highly!!!!

The main actors work extremely well together. It is obvious that a ton of time went into the production, preparation and rehearsals of the ensemble.

The direction is smart and beautifully executed. The film takes a few daring twists that are both unexpected and wonderfully funny. The characters are clear and also wonderfully funny and endearing. The film takes a clear stance on following your dreams and how hard that can be sometimes. The director communicates with interview style soliloquy as well as beautifully shot scenes.

Again, highly recommended. Can't wait to see what will come from this team in the future.
