Quirky comedy becomes first independent film in history to feature a coherent plot

Viewers amazed at linear storyline

When Lars Thompson entered the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, he thought he was about to watch yet another convoluted Indie film with overbearing themes and dubious plot twists. Instead, the 32-year-old bike messenger was treated to a simple movie about an unhappy dentist who inherits his father’s used car dealership.

“That was it. That was the whole story!” said Thompson, energized by the fact he actually understood the plot. “The guy was unhappy, he got his dad’s car dealership, some funny shit went down, and then he was happy. If this is what those ‘Hollywood’ movies are like, then count me in. I had no idea what I was missing!”

Thompson, who has only seen obscure Indie films ever since he dated a free-spirited artist in college, was completely unaware that movies are much better when they have traditional elements like story, plot and structure.

“All this time I thought it was normal for characters to recite inane poetry while staring at a body of water,” he said. “But now I realize plot is much, much better. I think I might even see Iron Man 2 when it comes out. Sounds fun…and I bet I’ll totally be able to follow it.”
