The Giant Mechanical Man Details


A jobless thirtysomething and a talented street performer help one another discover the transformative power of self confidence in this offbeat romantic comedy starring Jenna Fischer and Chris Messina. Written and directed by Lee Kirk, The Giant Mechanical Man opens to find Janice (Fischer) between jobs and stuck in a perpetual state of arrested development while living with her domineering sister. Attempting to gain employment at a zoo, she happens across Tim (Messina), a performance artist whose career as a "living statue" hasn't taken him very far in life. Meanwhile, as Janice succumbs to pressure to start dating a narcissistic self-help guru (Topher Grace), she realizes that Tim is the only person who has ever managed to make her feel good about herself. Malin Ackerman, Bob Odenkirk, and Lucy Punch co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
