Los Angeles. With the plug about to be pulled on his late night talk show after a fifteen
year run, and his wife engaged in a steamy affair with a pro baseball star, host Jack
West (Kevin Nealon) is desperate - to keep aflame his fading celebrity, and avenge
the misdeeds of his adulterous spouse. With the clock ticking, Jack concocts the
mother of all media stunts, killing two birds with one unforgettable stone on the road to
redemption. The scheme entangles an eclectic collection of colorful locals navigating
their way through unpredictable twists and turns. A plump private eye (Tom Arnold)
teams with a macabre-photographer (Nora Zehetner) to investigate the strange
disappearance of a dead body. A glassy-eyed cheddar head (Evan Peters) falls prey
to a phony get-rich-quick guru (Christopher Titus). Imperiled actors (Kip Pardue &
Dulé Hill) embark on a quest for a fresh corpse. Cops in costume, a peculiar special
effects make-up team, porn stars with dreams of stardom, a Jewish drug lord with very
large brothers, Russian mobsters and others converge in this unique roller-coaster
ride of comedy, mystery, murder and mayhem through the underbelly of modern day
Sodom and Gomorrah.
