Sex, Death and Bowling

Synopsis: Eli McAllister, our eleven-year-old hero, is on a quest. He is also setting out to win The Fiesta Cup, a local bowling tournament. Joining him is his famous fashion designer uncle, Sean McAllister (Adrian Grenier.) Sean hasn't spent time with his family - specifically his father - for years. But now he has come home to spend time with his older brother, Eli's father. Thrown into the tournament as his ailing brother's substitute, Sean clashes with his father as old wounds are opened. But instead of reliving the past, they pull together to bowl their best for Eli who stands to lose so much. Funny, sweet and soulful - SEX, DEATH AND BOWLING takes us on a journey to learn that the secret to life is loving what you have - even if it is just a split.

I'm sorry.

No, I... I... I just

feel bad for Eli is all.

I got to go.

He likes meeting me at the alley.

You know, he's great at

keeping stats that kid.

How much of an athlete though.

You know, Sean's probably at Rick's.

You want to stop by there first?

No, Eli'll be waiting for me.

Hey. wait a minute.

Have a good practice.


Where you going, midget?

Wolf, just leave me alone.


Are you going to stop me?

Yeah, like that's going to happen.


I already did your math homework.

And I was thinking maybe you

could write my history report.



I told you go to store.

I'm going.

Who's this?

Just a friend from school.

You got a name?

Eli McAllister, sir.

Ain't I seen you around a bowling alley?

I keep stats for my

grandpa's bowling team.

Dick McAllister's your grandpa?

Yes, sir.

So that means your

dad's Rick McAllister?

Yes, sir.

Now, your dad and grandpa used

to kick our asses in the Fiesta


You know I went to high

school with your dad.

I didn't know that.

What the hell are you still doing here?


It's a fucked up world, kid.

I'm sorry, sir?

You're dad... a

decorated war hero

and a hell of a ball

player... gets sick.

You're freaking uncle

makes more money than God.

You give your dad my best.

You tell your grandpa

we're going to take

the cup of his hands this year.


Where's Eli?

He's at the bowling alley with your dad.

He's keeping stats for the tournament.

He told me.

Said the cup is as good as ours already.


How we doing?





Were you able to get a nap at all?



How's your pain?

Not so bad.

Could we just...

he just woke up?

It's good to stay ahead of it.

All right.

Play me something.

I can't believe you had

that thing brought in here.
