Plot

Abacrombie is a down-on-his-luck loser. Upon being fired from his job, he sets out on a quest to find himself, encountering a variety of oddball characters who only make it harder for him. Sooner or later, he stumbles upon the girl of his dreams, and he determines to overcome his stupidity and win her heart.

Reception

The film was favorably reviewed by Howard Thompson of the New York Times and Judith Crist of New York Magazine, who compared Kaufman to Woody Allen and Mel Brooks.

The worst review, however, came from Kaufman's father: when asked what his favorite part was, he responded "the part where Lloyd gets killed".

Home media

The film has never been released on DVD individually, but is included in its entirety (and as a deconstructed version) on Kaufman's instructional box set, Make Your Own Damn Movie!, and is included as an Easter Egg on The Sexy Box, a DVD boxset of Squeeze Play!, Waitress!, Stuck on You! and The First Turn-On!.
