No, it’s not a Tenacious D film (unfortunately). Not THAT kind of D, just possibly a D-grade.

Jack Black plays Dan, a not-terribly-lovable schlub married to the inhumanly patient Katheryn Hahn who puts his nerdy status quo in jeopardy when he manufactures a web of lies to get himself out to LA to try to convince former high school acquaintance turned actor Oliver (James Marsden) to come back to the home town for a reunion party. Already teetering, things get worse when he shows up and Dan can’t quite take not being Oliver’s center of attention anymore. Chris, JC and Diva give this one a spin. Check it out…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
