I just rented this movie because of the title. I had no idea what it was about or any of the actors in it except Joey Adams. What I discovered was a tightly wound little film with great performances across the board by some very funny and gifted actors. The way the scenes flowed between Ira Heiden and Phil Brock was hysterical. Their chemistry was great. Brock's restraint is a riot to watch with Heiden, he plays it like an older brother that not only loves his kid brother, but wants to strangle him as well... This is also the best, most honest work that Joey Adams has ever done.

I recognized almost all of the actors once the film started from other movies, but their talents were really able to shine in this film. Especially, Ira Heiden who emerges as one of the most unlikely heroes in recent memory. Although the film is ten years old, it still rings true today as a testament to the Hollywood machine and the souls that are willing to feed it.

Take ninety minutes, and treat yourself to this indie talk fest. There's absolutely nothing flashy here, just good work. You'll be reminded what someone with a little money a decent script and good actors can do when they are given the chance.
