Billy (Will Bernish) is an at best so-so stand-up comedian ... until he
finds out he can get great laughs about his birth defect, a pair of
three-fingered, cartoon-like hands. This doesn't go unnoticed by talent
agent Mickey (Timothy J. Cox), who wants to put him under contract - but
tells him a cautionary tale about another of his clients (Matt Moores) who
had the hots for his girlfriend (Tatiana Ford), and his career he then
subtly destroyed. Billy's not sure what to make of the story, especially
with his career about to take off - and then Mickey's girlfriend makes a
pass at him ...
A nice little movie that relies on the virtues
of good old-fashioned storytelling, that being a well-conceived structure,
decisive plot twists in all the right places, a twist ending and the
combination of drama (narrative) irony. And add to that a very competent
cast and a directorial effort that gives the plot plenty of room to evolve
on its own account without being just functional, and you've got a very
decent little movie!
