A PR specialist refuses to market a car called a "Howard" - a colossal error that loses him a billion dollars and makes him a national joke. He loses his hair, shaves his beard, takes a new name, and moves to Martha's Vineyard. Jump ten years: "Rolly" is a popular local whose sangfroid evaporates when the Howard's inventor moves to the island. Rolly, his old self unrecognizable, hatches a plan to rid the island of his nemesis; he also decides to woo the billionaire's wife. Fellatio, a former girlfriend, a woman who's lost weight, her boyfriend, the band Chicago, a menacing Chechen, a bus load of ill children, and a pair of ne'er-do-wells with experience with explosives figure in the story.Written by
In the same way that the protagonist's name "Rolly" sounds like "Larry" in reverse, the plot also takes of on a real-life angle from Larry David's life. In 2007, his wife Laurie Lennard filed for divorce, after it was revealed she had an affair with a young contractor working on the couple's estate in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, the setting for this movie.

In the restaurant booth when Rolly presses his friend for the construction job, the key for the wallbox juke selector can be seen sticking out the right side. It's unlikely the key would be left in it normally. See more »
If Larry David wanted to make something EXACTLY like Curb Your Enthusiasm, why not just make another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm? Sadly, not only was this exactly like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but it is exactly like the later (terrible) seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm rather than the first few seasons. JB Smoove ruined CYE and he ruined this movie that should never have been made in the first place.
Mr. David...stick to half hour comedies. You have now attempted to make a feature length film twice in your career and have failed miserably both times. And if you insist on acting, then stick to playing yourself or at least a fictionalized version of yourself like in CYE. Don't bother trying to play someone else since every character you play is exactly the same person...you.
No, seriously...do you want to know how bad this was? Think Seinfeld finale bad.
