Instead of being allowed to sleep in on his day off, a man is called in to work an extra shift at his convenience store job, and his day goes to complete shit.
The acting is a little halted in places, since these are mostly or perhaps entirely first-timers, but the writing is spectacular. It's got great flow and style, and is hilarious and memorable.
I first rented this as a VHS tape back in the day, and was immediately impressed. I'm glad this movie, and its author, have done well.
