Storyline

When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?

Trivia

The miniature steam train shown at about 54 minutes into the movie was originally installed at the Herbert Fleishhacker Zoo, now known as the San Francisco Zoo, in 1925 and operated for 53 years until being temporarily retired in 1978. The steam train was then restored in 1997, at which time it was converted from coal to natural gas burning. The original train was offered for sale via a 1905 Cagney catalog for $15,000. The 1997 train restoration cost approximately $75,000 with the total coming to $700,000 when including the depot, plaza, track, landscaping and storage barn. See more »

Horrible
16 November 2019 | by catdaddydSee all my reviews

This movie was absolutely horrible and a total waste of time. As someone who loves Psych, and James Roday this movie was a total waste. He did drink a lot of coffee in this movie, for whatever reason.
