Synopsis

Frank Capra's classic film "It's a Wonderful Life" from 1946 is reworked and re-edited by Comedy Central, substituting a new audio track that changes the dialogue, music and story line. Comedians provide the voices of Jimmy Stewart and the rest of the characters. In this satirical version, the town of Bedford Falls relies on the revenue generated from their production of "It's a Wonderful Life," but George Bailey is interested in lucrative roles in action movies and goes to Mr. Potter, the executive producer, to be let out of his contract. George then wreaks havoc on the production by ad-libbing his lines, scoring cocaine at Mr. Gower's drug store and confessing to Mary that he is gay. He ultimately finds perspective on his situation through the divine intervention of Clarence, his Hollywood agent.
