Storyline

"After moving to a small, rural town, uptight Joel Bixby (Tony Award-nominee John Cariani, Showtime, Kissing Jessica Stein), is invited by an agreeable new acquaintance to join a group of townsmen who meet in a ramshackle room at the edge of town. Normally a loner, Joel finds himself enamored by boisterous, fast food connoisseur Leo Applegate (Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Edward Asner, Up, Elf, TV's Lou Grant and The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and reluctantly agrees to go.

an actors movie - only!
14 October 2012 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

actors who study actors and acting are about the only people who will enjoy this film. an unbelievable story with a drifting script and Joel -the main character- comes across as just stupid.

i first thought this was a support group for the mentally unstable. by the end of the movie i could see i wasn't wrong. but that's not what the film is about!! the writer and director have other intentions. you'll have to suffer through this yourself to see what that intention is.

as i state above if you want to study an exercise in 'acting' this is a good choice. if you want entertainment don't bother! if you want to get rid of company quickly put this movie on - they'll be gone in 10 minutes.
