A middle-aged loser discovers that a willingness to do anything (no really, anything) on camera is the Short Cut to Hollywood (2009). Johannes (Jan Henrik Stahlberg) is a German insurance agent who suspects (and rightly so) that his life is going nowhere. So he packs up his loser buddies Matt (Marcus Mittermeier Meier) and Chrismon (Christoph Kottenkamp) and heads off to the USA to become famous. And when their plan of becoming rock stars fails, a desperate Johannes offers to first cut off all his limbs and then commit suicide on national TV. Not only does this get him the attention he's always craved, it also gets him all the groupie gazongas he can handle courtesy of sexy brunette Marta McGonagle. It might be a Short Cut, but it'll make you grow long.
