Story


Jake Klein, 50, sets out to make a movie. He hires an actor to play himself and throws a big party. His idea is to shoot the heck out of it and see what he gets. But, everything spins out of control as different, unexpected people show up. Old loves are there. New loves are there. His dead father, his mother when she was young, his kids, his ex-wife. Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life. Jake's head reels as he staggers through what's either a mystical experience, a nervous breakdown... or both!

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."Jake Squared" combines the most grating tendencies of meta navel-gazing with the sexism of reality television..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [New York Times]
“..Jake Squared has little humor, zero romance, and is so painfully unaware that it counts as one of the worst self-referential comedies ever..”
by Travis Hopson [Examiner.com]
“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
