The Comeback Trail (OV)
There is one thing film producer Max Barber desperately needs: money! Debts to the mob and no successful movie in years have ruined his “company”, which consists of himself and his nephew Walter. Even their last movie “Killer Nuns” was a disaster!
But suddenly Max is struck by an inspiration as he reads about a movie star’s accident and the insurance money paid to the film crew. Max has a plan – and everything’s gonna be so easy! All he needs is some sort of a movie script which involves a lot of dangerous action stunts, an old person no one will miss, and an insurance company. The soon-to-be-dead leading actor will be insured to the hilt and voilà, Max and Walter will be rich! What could possibly go wrong?
I won't risk calling this movie a miracle, but if this year has left you in desperate need of a good laugh, look no further. (The Australian)
