Ah, the delusional life of a manchild. Jack (Alex Anfanger) and Ben (Lenny Jacobson) are well into their thirties, but they’re still jobless and live at home. The brothers are certain that the janky movies they produce in their parents’ garage are bound to catch the attention of someone like Steven Spielberg, catapulting them into fame. When their parents tell them it’s time to move out and find jobs, they hatch a plan to extract $20,000 from them first. The brothers pretend that Ben is a drug addict and enlist actor Jimmy Staats (Ben Stiller) to pretend to be a fearsome drug dealer and kidnap their innocent, albeit very slow, friend Del (Jon Bass). Their parents are prepared to pay the ransom to save Ben and Del, until it all goes horribly awry. The cops get involved, Ben lands himself in rehab, and Del is in way over his head, even if he doesn’t really understand it.
This brand new Ben Stiller-produced series is on Comedy Central on Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30. Catch up on all three episodes here in advance of the fourth episode on Wednesday, starring Cuba Gooding Jr. They'll be available streaming for free on Maxim.com for a week.
