    It closed out "SF/27", this February's Boston Sci-Fi Marathon/Film Festival, and is, indeed, a riot. Jerry Stiller is very funny as an even lower-rent Roger Corman, with pretty solid support from Janeane Garafolo and Max Perlich.
    You can get some idea about the movie by visiting its main character's website, www.finemanfilms.com, too.

    Yes! A VERY funny movie. If it ever comes to your theater...GO SEE IT.
    It reminds you of all the Good bad filmmakers..like Ed Wood, Rodger Corman and Hershel Gordon Lewis
