** Spoilers ahead! Read at own risk **

Jeff (Nimoy) has made a bit of a name for himself as a voice actor in such popular anime series as Digimon and Trigun, but of late he has fallen on hard times as he has burned all bridges to the anime world while his efforts to make it as a producer on reality TV shows lead to nought. So he's more than happy to accept an invitation to an anime convention as a guest star, especially since it's a paid gig. And at first the convention proves to be an enormous ego-boost for Jeff, as he's treated like royalty, turns out to be the biggest star at the event, discovers he can actually sell his autographs for good money, and he even beds a fangirl, Lana (Margo Graff), the first night - or at least he tries to bed her, ultimately he's not able to get it up, and when he learns she's a mere 18, he, after a freak-out, is even happy he couldn't perform.

The next day, at a panel, Jeff meets fellow voice actress Nikki (Boyer), and he's immediately charmed by her, and vice versa, and eventually they do spend the night together (with no erectile problems this time around). Problem is, another voice actor at the con, Brian (Donovan), is actually Nikki's ex, and he would go to any length to win her back, so he seeds doubt with Nikki, telling her about Jeff's fling with Lana, and when that doesn't help, enlists the help of Lana to break up the relationship between Jeff and Nikki - with some success, too. Now Jeff isn't one to give up on what he considers the love of his life easily, but that said there's also Lana's dad, his colleague Lex (Lang), who's not too happy about Jeff running around with his daughter, and Lex is a rather big guy ...

 

Now above all, one has to give Jeff Nimoy credit for producing, writing and directing a movie as self-deprecating as this one - now of course, I know nothing about the man's private life to know how much of the movie is based on his personal experiences, but Nimoy plays himself, and he's indeed a star of the anime voice-over world and has done both above series in real life as well, and he does play "himself" (with a handful of colleagues from the trade doing likewise), and the picture he paints of himself isn't exactly free of flaws. But the film is more than just a cheap self parody as it tells a rather sweet story of its own, makes good use of its setting and the con-atmosphere as a whole without just going moronic, and gets the most out of a solid ensemble to bring the story to life, with Jeff Nimoy succeeding in making his character (himself?) likeable despite (or maybe because of) all his flaws, all of which makes this a rather enjoyable little movie.
