See This Movie | 2006
After graduating with "top honors" from a 3-day film school, aspiring cinema legend Jake Barrymore learns that ex-girlfriend, Annie Nicole, is a programmer for the Montreal World Film Festival. Seeing a great opportunity to have his talent recognized, he calls her and lobbies hard for a festival screening of his breakthrough first feature, leaving out the fact that it doesn't yet exist. When he can't convince her to accept his movie sight unseen, he tells her that he's dying. Believing that Jake has both a profoundly personal film and a brain tumor, Annie agrees to give him a screening. Now in desperate need of a movie to show at the festival, Jake throws together his dream team: Aspiring Producer and fellow 3-day graduate Larry Finkelstein, their cynical and lecherous teacher Martin Hughes, and a sexy drug dealer moonlighting as an actress. As the festival begins, they race to make Jake's masterpiece, "Shooting from the Soul," a dramatic mockumentary about Jake making a film about himself. With no money, crew or script, can they pull it off in time for the screening, or before the festival can find out that they don't really have a film?
