Jason Schwartzman portrays Larry, an inebriated sad sack who rides a tide of booze onto the shores of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube. All seems awash, except for the fact he finds himself smitten with the boss, Lupe (Eleanore Pienta).

Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman’s real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major (T.V. on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe), and do his cantankerous grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud?

Review

Bob Byington’s love letter to Austin Texas features Jason Schwartzman exactly as he should be with his awkwardly funny persona and smart-ass remarks.  Schwartzman’s fans will love the opportunity to watch him spin his wheels.
