Ben Popik brought his former comedy troupe (Olde English) a challenge: the five comedy writers would each write fifteen pages of a movie, having read only the previous writer's last five pages. They agreed with one stipulation: if they wrote the movie, he had to make it. The result is this one-of-a-kind narra-doc crossover that is equal parts comedy, psychosexual thriller, children's television show, love story, and supernatural adventure. Meanwhile, documentary footage provides an inside look into the creative process and the group dynamics that make collaboration between friends difficult. A hilarious ride in a runaway car cobbled together from junkyard parts as hijacked by schizophrenic geniuses.
"A tour-de-force of hand-wringing, head-banging brilliance mixed with side-splitting comedy." - CLEVELAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
"The concept is wildly original and consistently entertainingthere really isn't a moment where the film feels uninspired." - THE HUFFINGTON POST
