An aspiring actor (Mika Boorem, who was in Blue Crush and also directed and co-wrote this movie with Benjamin Boorem, Cshediiz Coleman and Benjamin Lockman) has accidentally stolen the identity of a Veronica Lake (Paige Howard, Adventureland) and made her way to Guatemala to be part of a blockbuster film.
While there, a cartel leader named El Jade (Tom Arnold!) thinks she’s the leader of another gang, which leads to her father Ben (Benjamin Boorem, her real-life father)having to rescue her, then work with a Mayan priest to somehow get the film made.
This is a cute film and you can tell both Boorems were looking for a project to get Mika experience in directing. It’s a pretty big first effort and definitely a nice little caper film.
Hollywood.CON is now available on Amazon.
