novelby Peter Farrelly.
The story revolves around Henry Halloran, a young man who quits his sales job in
New Englandand moves to Los Angelesto pursue his dream of becoming a comedic screenwriter. Henry's pursuit is an arduous one, involving many humiliating rejections, low-paying waitstaff jobs to pay the bills, and a grating, unwanted female roommate.
