Starring as Gord Brody, a slacker fast-approaching 30, yet still living in his father's basement, Green is his usual obtusely hilarious, polymorphously perverse self. Physical comedy ascends to the realm of extreme performance art as Brody's unachievable lifelong dream to become an animator causes him to clash with his hardened father (played by the steely and equally funny Rip Torn.)
A furtive love affair with a wheelchair-bound rocket scientist and the disturbing hi jinx of a troublesome younger brother named Freddy form the core of the sublimely stupid plot that serves mainly as a platform from which Green launches his incredible and often irrational comedic fare. Testing the limits of comedy Green goes where no comedian has been and pulls it off in Elephant size proportions. Trust me he does.
