Story


Wendell Baker (Luke Wilson) is a dreamer and schemer whose latest scam lands him in jail and alienates him from his longtime girlfriend Doreen (Eva Mendes, best friend Reyes (Jacob Vargas) and even his dog, Junior. Eternally optimistic, Wendell makes the most of his time behind bars and vows to turn his life around. Upon release, he gets a job at the Shady Grove retirement hotel, where he befriends residents Boyd (Seymour Cassel), Skip (Harry Dean Stanton) and Nasher (Kris Kristofferson). Wendell's new friends advise him on how to win back his girlfriend, while he helps them battle the hotel's evil head nurse, Neil King (Owen Wilson) and his right-hand man, McTeague (Eddie Griffin).

by Scott "Klimber" Martinez [Comingsoon]
“..The movie is laid-back to the point of nothingness, but its mellow loopiness isn't without charm..”
