Trivia

Benita Robledo said in an interview that while filming this largely improvised independent feature film, she spent hours each day with her director and co-star working out dialogue and scenes. So when the director, Michael David Lynch, suggested they do a full frontal nude scene, Robledo says she felt comfortable telling him in no uncertain terms that she didn't want to do it. But, she says, upon her refusal, Lynch became demanding, telling her the scene depicted something "real" and the movie needed to be authentic. He eventually agreed to film two versions of the scene, including one that framed the shot without exposing her, and promised to give her approval on the final version. So she filmed the scene nude. Several months later, when Robledo was in a theater full of people for the film's first screening, she saw his final cut and she says. "I see myself huge, 50 feet high, completely naked." Deciding she could not go through with a release of the film in its current iteration, Robledo emailed Lynch to let him know. He called her back, she says, and began berating her. "He's screaming at me that I'm stealing his movie from him, and he says, 'You shouldn't be upset, because guys were asking me at the screening for your number because they wanted to f--- you.'" After several months, Lynch agreed to reshoot the approximately 30-second scene with Robledo wearing a T-shirt. She was so disturbed by his behavior, though, that she opted out of appearing publicly in support of the film, despite winning an award for best actress at the Hill Country Film Festival in Texas. She says, "I will never know what I missed out on by not doing press," which can be an important opportunity for actors to network, get publicity and meet industry insiders. When reached for comment, Lynch denied the allegations, stating that the nude scene in question was in the script, that Robledo "wanted to do it," and that her recollection of his statements are inaccurate. "During the creative process," he says, "there are always going to be emotional conversations and disagreements." See more »

I'm a huge Shannon Lucio fan (The Oc/Prison Break) so when I heard she was going to be in this movie I had to go see it. As I watched the movie I found myself laughing at so many different parts. The cast is amazing and quite funny in this movie. The Main actor reminds you quite a bit of Josh Gad at moments. This is a comedy at its truest core and will keep you engaged till the very end.
