Storyline

An insightful comedy with roots in the great mockumentary movement of the 1980s, the film follows an impassioned and misguided wannabe filmmaker, John Viener (a comedian playing himself), who throws everything away to make "a film that's gonna win Sundance." Seeking advice from friends, industry veterans and technicians, his quest becomes a guided tour of what to do, and, more pointedly, what not to do. Written by Anonymous

R2PC (2000) Is the Funniest Movie I ever Saw...But You Gotta Be A Movie Person To Get It All!
19 November 2010 | by DavidAllenUSASee all my reviews

R2PC (2000) is the funniest movie I ever saw. I laughed so hard, my sides split and laughing gets to the point where it all hurts seriously.

"It only hurts when I laugh" is what happens to me when I see all the crazy stuff and people and wonderful lines in R2PC (2000).

I started work in movies when I as 18 years old (1963).

I was the star of a college production titled The Easter Parade (1963 Mike Mideke Films - Antioch College Ohio) starring David Roger Allen (my birth name back then, which I used...I changed my name to "Tex Allen" when I joined SAG years later, due to too many guys named or claiming "David Allen" for their "one of a kind" "SAG Name"...I played "Jesus in Chicago" in this movie....dressed in sheets to simulate a toga, etc. etc.).

Anyway, now it's 2010 and I've been in the movie biz damn near 50 years, and I've been "around the block," so to speak, in the movie biz.

I've seen it all, done it all, and mercifully, I'm still alive (not rich, but you can't have everything!).

The R2PC (2000) movie says it all re: hustlers, weirdos, awful people, wonderful people in the movie biz.

I loved it.

I love it.

See this movie. You'll love it, too.
