| ugly character and then ...
Lonnie (Joshua Leonard) is not happy with his life. He rather smoke marijuana. He's unhappy working on TV commercials. His wife Clover (Jess Weixler) surprises him after getting a big job offer. They have a baby together. He's even more unhappy as his easy-going musician days slip further away. He decides to not go in to work and lie about the reason. He smokes with his friend Tank who is pushing his idea for face food.

Lonnie is a really ugly character and I'm not just talking about his glasses. He's needy. He's petty. He's childish. He's arrogant. Once this character is laid out, the question becomes what the movie does with him. Clover says he's a great father. That's not where I'm at with him. I'm waiting to go a different direction than this movie. I want it to do something edgier and more compelling.
