Cam: Just fucking show me the money, dude. You fucking seen Jerry Maguire? you know what I'm talking about?
Abbie: No.
Cam: Show me the money. Fucking Thomas Cruise style. You should see it though, because it got Jerry Cantrell from fucking Alice in Chains in it. He plays like a fucking Kinko's employee.

Relaxer
20 July 2018 | by jflaherty131See all my reviews

I caught this film at Fantasia Festival this summer (July 2018). I had no idea what to expect and found myself pleasantly surprised by what I saw. I found Relaxer to be captivating of my attention throughout the entire film. I'm glad I checked this out.
