Nerdland

Synopsis: NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous -- or infamous -- then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed -- and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.

You baked...? You baked a cake?

Oh, okay. Well, I'm...

I'm a bit indisposed right now,

Mrs. McCullers.

Can...? Can you just leave it

on the doorstep right there?

MRS. McCULLERS:
The birds will get it.

- What?

- Aah! Penis.

[MUTTERING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Uh, Brett, this is John Truman.

Yeah, yeah. Nice to, uh... Nice to meet you.

Five minutes, Mr. Truman.

Well, let's get down to, uh...

To brass tacks, then.

Shall we? Okay. So...

...uh, question one:

When you, yourself, go

to the movies, Mr. Anderson...

Uh... Or Brett. May I call you Brett?

Yeah. Yeah. You know what?

I, uh... I prefer you didn't.

I see. Well, as I was saying.

When you, yourself,

attend a moving picture...

...what would you say is

your favorite fountain drink?

- Pardon me?

- Which beverage...

...do you find most refreshing,

as a rule of thumb?

Uh... You know, I'm not really sure

what this has to do with my new movie:

Rock Paper Scissors Murder...

...but you know,

if you have any questions about this...

...gripping, psychological thriller...

- ...I'm glad to answer them.

- Of course.

Moving on. Question two:

As both an artist

and an aficionado of the cinema...

...do you prefer popcorn with

or without butter-flavored topping?

Mr. Truman, exactly which, uh,

publication do you represent?

I'm employed by Concessionaire Monthly.

Magazine of the theatrical

food-service industry.

- Okay. You'd better come with me.

- Okay. Yes, but you know what?

- If I could have one moment.

- Please.

- I've got a screenplay you're perfect for.

- Security.

- Oh, God.

- Now, I didn't write it.

My roommate Elliot did.

But it's a real page-turner.

It's a tad long, all right?

Four hundred pages,

but it's dramatic and touching.

It's laugh-out-loud funny. Funny yet real.

It's about a UFO investigator
