Angus Booley (Tom Detrik) whom life seems to have shat on: He's fired from his dead end customer service job because this branch of the company has been outsourced to India, his wife Fiona (Raine Brown) cheats on him and doesn't even tro too hard to hide it, and his teenage daughter Rose (Carmela Hayslett) is bullied in school and lets her frustrations out on him because ... well, she's his teenage daughter.

One day though, he buys himself a self-empowerment DVD by Jack Harrington (Christopher Mann) - and everything changes. It's not so much that he really understands the messages Harrington tries to deliver (pretty much the usual, actually), it's what he wants to hear ... so, driven by the DVD, Booley buys himself a gun - not a real one, mind you, just a prop gun - and first uses it to save a jogger from being raped. Later, he pulls his gun on a thug at the cinema, but he calls his bluff and wants to beat him up ... but Booley is so pumped up by his newfound "inner strength" that he actually manages to kill the guy. The feeling is just great, so next he takes care of his boss (Warren Hemenway) who fired him, the girl (Gina Lynn) who bullies his daughter, the man (Josh Caso) who shags his wife ... and finally he takes care of Fiona, too.

However, Booley is not the smartest of men or the cleverest of criminals, so it doesn't take long for the cops to get onto his trail - but before he lets himself be captured, Booley knows he just has to meet his idol Jack Harrington at a book signing, even if it's the last thing he ever does ... which it might very well be.

 

At its best moments, Booley is a delightfully biting, subversive satire that doesn't take much heed of things like political correctnes or good taste, but without overdoing it in terms of just provoking the audience. And some of the jokes are really funny, too, and Tom Detrik seems to be just perfect in the title role.

That said though, as a whole, Booley is not a perfect movie, it's narrative build-up is rather off at times, several scenes simply lead to nowhere, and as a whole, the script could have been quite a bit tighter.

Still, if you want to have fun and aren't scared of taking a trip to the mean side of life, this film is definitely worth your while!
