"When a talented but hapless traveling songwriter (Henry Phillips) moves to LA to shake things up, his luck changes overnight. Thanks less to his inept manager than to a wild case of mistaken identity, he falls backwards into a string of packed gigs, a record deal and even the promise of love. But he who lives by the whimsy of show business dies by it: an innocent miscommunication over a bagel makes him the victim of a vicious rumor in the tabloids. Luckily, somewhere between rock bottom and the middle of nowhere lies the perfect terrain for Henry's dark and hilarious songs"--Container.

In the spirit of 'Spinal Tap.' A matter of taste.

Man, there's not even a Facebook page for this movie. No one has heard of it. And it's a shame! 10 minutes in, I thought I was not going to make it, but I'm glad I stuck in there. Good movie about a guy who does his own thing and realizes the importance of doing it his way. Love the songs. Just a light lot of fun with a good storyline. His observations on people are pretty funny. Good indy film.

Really great movie. It shows how messed up the industry can be.

Hilarious! A "serious" spoof on the entertainment industry with the bonus of twisted folksy songs. Had me laughing out loud.
