Storyline

Jake Klein, 50, sets out to make a movie. He hires an actor to play himself and throws a big party. His idea is to shoot the heck out of it and see what he gets. But, everything spins out of control as different, unexpected people show up. Old loves are there. New loves are there. His dead father, his mother when she was young, his kids, his ex-wife. Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life. Jake's head reels as he staggers through what's either a mystical experience, a nervous breakdown... or both! Written by Jake Squared LLC

Thumbs up!

Looking back through the years and coming to terms with the obsessions that haunt us is generally speaking a love/ hate experience.

Unless it is done through the eyes of Elias Koteas, then it is pure love. Some actors are a genuine pleasure to watch, and Koteas is one of them.

Who doesn't wonder if it could have gone different, if it could have been better, or if it should all just be forgotten. Who doesn't wonder if maybe we blew all our best chances,and if so, whether any more will ever come along to help us forget the ones we screwed up. This movie has solid laughs and plenty to reflect about, I totally enjoyed this quirky, how-did-I-get-here, party!
