About the Movie
From director Michael J. Weithorn and writer/star Rob Benedict ("Supernatural”) comes the story of Max McCabe, career sidekick. In a world populated by fairly unremarkable superheroes and supervillains (portrayed by an ensemble of comedic actors including Ron Livingston, Lizzy Caplan, Jordan Peele, Martin Starr, Jason Ritter, Sam McMurray, Ike Barinholtz, Josh Meyers, Laura Silverman and Fred Stoller), Max McCabe (Benedict) has thrived for years as right hand man to legendary superhero Captain Wonder (Livingston) - carrying his boss's golden lasso and yelling things like, "Look out!" and "Here, catch!" But when Max, now pushing 40, begins to grow lazy and indifferent in the performing of even these minor tasks, he is unceremoniously fired and cast adrift - quickly discovering that society has little demand for an aging ex-professional buddy.
Hilarious take on the superhero genre. Spot on casting, well written and relatable characters. I’ve been eagerly waiting to see this film for over a year and am so extremely pleased with how fantastic it turned out to be! Please give it a watch. You won’t regret it, promise!
BEST short ever!!!!!
loved every second!! Hysterically funny … I keep watching it over and over!
Sweet, funny, and honestly, haven't we all felt this way at least once? Great cameos by some unexpected people. And ALL HAIL THE RED BOOTS.
