Jason Schwartzman–and his dog!–star in Bob Byington's off-beat comedy about a misanthropic slacker who struggles to stay employed.

In this sly, quirky comedy from director Bob Byington (Somebody Up There Likes Me), Jason Schwartzman portrays Larry, an inebriated sad sack who rides a tide of booze onto the shores of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube. The only bright spot is probably his 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 (TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe), and do his cantankerous grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud?
