In the hands of writer-director-star Scott Prendergast, he... but wait, he has no hands. No fingers. As corporate mascots go, "Kabluey" is useless, which is one reason poor Salman (Prendergast) is dropped off on a remote stretch of Texas highway to hand out fliers trying to rent excess office space that the dying BlueNexion Corp has in its headquarters.
It's a sweet, ingenious, twisted and surreal comedy, kind of Samuel Beckett by way of Adam Sandler, with Prendergast, as a hopeless ninny of a nanny, trying to heal a broken family, an endangered marriage and an incompetent, corrupt company that cost a lot of people ( Teri Garr, included) their life savings.
A one-word title is worth a one-word endorsement: unique.
Screening at: Sunday, March 30, 9:30 p.m.–11 p.m. at Regal; Thursday, April 3, 6:30 p.m.–8:20 p.m. at Regal
