A failed magician finds sudden stardom as a ventriloquist when he comes across a foul-mouthed dummy named Fats. But as the pressures of stardom mount, something strange begins to happen as the dummy takes control of his human.

Ben Greene comments that the IQ of his three "genius lawyers" must "total up to 100." Given the average IQ of a person is 100, this actually doesn't say much for three lawyers.
