G.T. Benz, a Viet Nam vet and recent widower, tries to cope with the problems of aging and loneliness -- while beset by an aggressive robo-caller. The tedium and aggravations in his life are only relieved by a weekly get-together with his old 'Nam buddies, ex-fighter pilots like himself. He joyfully looks forward to a promised visit from his long absent daughter, "Tricia," whom he describes as "my only reason for living." A poor prognosis from his doctor gives urgency to his desire to see her at least one more time. However, Tricia, unaware of G.T.'s state of health, keeps putting off her visit. Meanwhile, a 'Nam buddy dies, and the robocalls become more intense. When a manipulative woman emerges from G.T.'s past, his life is thrown into chaos and he is driven to a desperate act.Written by
What kills this movie is the lack of direction. The actors seem capable enough to pull this story off, but the over-acting and lack of realism in the delivery, makes this a dud.
Every response and reaction from the lead character "GT", seems over the top angry and over the edge. His phone rings and he is like what is this contraption, why is this making noise, who dare disturb my loneliness!
Also, I dont quite get why they struggled with timing in the conversations, specifically when on the phone...I mean this move revolves around the phone, yet the delays and gaps in the phone conversations are very distracting.
I had high hopes for this movie, it had a potentially good concept but got distracted by a lot of time filling, boring unrelated flat story and unrealistic dialogue and temperament!
By the way, this guy is supprised by every call he gets, and never knows whos calling.
