Movie 43

Synopsis: Ineffectual, 'has-been' film-maker (Dennis Quaid) swindles his way into an interview with a film executive (Greg Kinnear) in order to pitch an outrageous and controversial comedy manuscript. After pitching the first of his thirteen offbeat fables, the dejected artist forces the rest of his disjointed allegory on the executive at gunpoint. He tells stories of a woman on a blind date with a man who has testicles growing from his neck, in another a smitten woman offers her neck to her boyfriend to 'poop' on -as a sign of commitment and love. In yet another two parents take home-schooling to a whole new level of indecency, striving to give their isolated teenage son all the 'regular' torment and humiliation of puberty by bullying, peer-pressuring and even seducing him themselves. An off-beat, elephant-in-the-room type film.

Ah, I think it may be that vent there.

- Here we are.

- Oh, man!

Look at the size of those things.

Jake, buddy, would you mind

turning up the heat just a tad?

- I think that vent's blowing right on me.

- Not a problem.

Thank you.

- And just let me go ahead...

- Sure.

...and get this out of your way.


Oh, God! Are you OK?

It's my stomach... It's...



Just get my breath back here.

Oh. OK.

- There he is, there's the stud.

- Hey! Angie!

- How the hell are you guys? You good?

- Apparently not as good as you.

Hi, I'm Angie,

and this is my husband, Ray.

- Hi.

- This is my new friend, Beth.

She's slowly restoring

my faith in blind dates.

Kudos to you, Beth,

for getting this old workaholic

out of his office for once.

Nice work. You caught the big one.

Did I? Do you not notice...

Look how big little Evan's getting.

Come here. Can I?

- Come here.

- He's growing like crazy.

- Whoa!


- No...

- He's a big boy.

- Yeah.

- Who's a big boy?

Who's a big boy, huh?

He's a monster. You've got yourself

a little linebacker here.

A little linebacker

that needs to go to bed.

- Get you off to bed.

- Up. Oh!

- Uh-oh. Don't move.

- Another pacifier down.

I got it.

Thanks, buddy. Thanks, bud.

You guys look so cute

I gotta take a picture.

Really? Oh.

- Angie, please...

- Let the man eat, honey.

Come on, Ray.

We have a picture of our first date,

they should have a picture of theirs.

Come on. Get your fanny

over there, behind her.

And don't be shy.

- OK, OK, OK. All right.

- OK.

- I'm sorry about this. OK.

Get in close.

Beth, I'm gonna need you to hold still.

Oh, God, they look so...

Get down.

Get your face down next to hers.

- Come on!

- Take it. Take it.
