NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous -- or infamous -- then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed -- and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.

There is a reference to "potato Jesus" fresco painting hanging on the old woman neighbor's kitchen wall that went viral on August 21st, 2012, when a failed painting restoration performed by an elderly woman named Cecilia Jiménez. Jiménez wished to restore a damaged fresco created by Spanish painter Elías García Martínez named Ecce Homo, which was donated to the Santuario de Misericordia Church in the Spanish town of Borja. According to the church, Jiménez restored the painting without permission. However, she has claimed the priest allowed her to do so. See more »

User Reviews

Really feels like it wasn't meant to be a film

Rather messy and not very funny. Feels like it should either be a series of 5 minute shorts or expanded to 12 episode series of 30 minute episodes. Rather juvenile humor. Looks okay but cheap at times, honestly thought it was made in the mid 2000s.

Clunky in general.
