“THE AMAZING MR. Z” – Family Comedy
It’s two days before Christmas. Seven-year-old Jordy loves to draw superheroes. Wearing a superhero costume, he struggles on this snow-covered garage roof and, as though flying, leaps into space.
A legend on screen reads “Six Months Earlier.” Jordy’s father, Michael Braddock writes for Newsweek. He and his wife, Emily, a real estate agent, work such long hours that Jordy spends almost as much time with the babysitter. Being undersized and shy, he often gets bullied at school.
Michael’s editor assigns him a story about a substandard nursing homes in Miami. When Emily has to attend a real estate convention, Michael winds up taking Jordy with him. There they meet grumpy Irving Zuppermann, 84, and his energetic girlfriend, Wanda Williamson, 81. Both live a Sunshine Convalescent, a Medicaid Alzheimer’s facility. The two are going to change Jordy’s life.
Wanda was placed at Sunshine because she had rescued too many homeless pets. Once a Warsaw Circus strongman whose act was “The Amazing Mr. Z,” Irving was placed at Sunshine because he insists, he’s a superhero. This explains the tattered long-sleeved shirt with a big “Z” on his chest. (And yet, Mr. Z does feats that defy logic and then there’s that secret dating back to WW II).
Unbeknownst to Mr. Z and Wanda, he’s scheduled to be moved. Encouraging others that everyone can be a superhero goes against Sunshine’s policy of sedating its residents.
Can Michael prevent his son’s “pretend grandfather” from being forced into a lockdown facility? Does he discover that with Emily and Jordy he’s already rich? Believing in Mr. Z’s “there’s a little superhero in all of us,” can Jordy stand up to the bully? And does Wanda finally get Mr. Z to marry her?

“FLY GUYS” – Romantic Comedy
Working at a medieval-themed restaurant named Jousts Knightly, best friends Larry Razor and Skitch Rich are constantly badgered, berated, and belittled – that is, until they decide to become flight attendants. They do this so they can meet women and fly around the country following the Bonas Brothers, their favorite teenage boy band. After quitting the restaurant in a very public manner, Larry and Skitch enroll in flight attendant academy at Eastwest Airlines, a low-rent outfit that’s basically the Denny’s of airlines: Nobody plans to end up there. It just kinda happens.
The academy is run by Thomas Osbourne, a former fighter pilot for the U.S. Air Force. Osbourne has transitioned poorly to civilian life, treating the trainees like military grunts. As he says, “I’ve been a prickly bastard since I was a fetus and I ain’t stopping now.” Helping Osbourne is Martha Scoggins, a surly flight attendant so incredibly ancient she lost her virginity in a three-way with the Wright Brothers. She has no time or patience for anything but booze and smokes, and she scares the hell out of Larry, Skitch, and fellow trainees Charles Rosewood and Donna Rice (Larry’s love interest).
For their final qualifying test, the trainees must serve as the crew on a real passenger flight to Cleveland, where the Bonas Brothers are coincidentally playing their next show. But during the flight, both the pilot and co-pilot are rendered unconscious. Larry and Skitch to the rescue! Thanks to stellar flying skills honed on PlayStation and X-Box, they land the plane safely and still have time to hit the Bonas Brothers concert, where they are greeted as heroes. In the end, they save the day, get to sing with their favorite band, and officially become flight attendants. Part Airplane!, part Police Academy, and all funny, Fly Guys proves that greatness (f)lies within us all, there’s a home for everyone in this world, and the Wright Brothers were pretty damn kinky.
