Longing to wipe the slate clean and move on with his life, the invisible, down-to-earth professional audience member, Eddie Krumble, travels from one studio to another with his best friend, Chris, to make a living cheering for products on countless infomercial shows. Having learned to content himself with his anonymity, when he doesn't put his hands together for dubious merchandise or ask softball questions, Eddie is looking for excuses to visit his secret crush, Judy: a mousy cashier at a small gas station on Melrose Avenue. Then, Eddie catches the eye of the famous late-night talk show host, Jayme Stillerman, and just like that, anonymous Krumble becomes an overnight sensation. But, sometimes, love prefers to be quiet, and fame can be so loud and exhausting. Can there be a future between the clapper and the gas-station girl?Written by
The noticeable brand of chips at the gas station when Eddie speaks to Judy are Utz brand chips. Utz was specifically chosen by The Office producers in the vending machines on set due to their local roots in Hanover, Pennsylvania (The Office takes place in Scranton). Ed Helms who plays Eddie, was a cast member of The Office. See more »

Terrible writing, pretty good acting
Human beings do not on any level act like this. Audiences dont laugh at terrible jokes and anothers tragedy just because its passed off with blase.
Unsurprisingly Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried both do a great job of representing sweet, out of touch and stressed "nobodys" but the writing here is horrible, not cute just awkward lines just make them into expository dolls despite their best efforts.
Im surprised this movie was made but arts a risk and Im sure everyone gave it a college try. Lots of good qualities.
