WHO IS JOSEPH REEDMAN?

Meet Joseph Reedman. He has the supporting father, the 9-5 job and a girlfriend on the horizon. He is a god in his own eyes, but to everyone else he is a professional idiot. When his estranged brother Liam lands on his doorstep asking for help, life starts to take an unexpected turn and Joseph is faced with decisions that will alter his structured existence and maybe get him the woman of his dreams.

WHAT IS THIS CRAZY FILM ALL ABOUT?

Love….family….life….stupidity….bad dancing….compelling facial hair….You name it, this film has it, and all in bundle that will make you laugh and cringe at the same time. THE PROFESSIONAL IDIOT will take you on a magical journey (unicorns excluded) into the life of Joseph Reedman – the ultimate self-assured geek/idiot you can find. You will get to meet his grumpy bastard father, Keith; his nosey and sassy neighbour, Martha; his black sheep spunk rat of a brother, Liam; his ultimate office hottie crush, Sophie; and his endearing and ‘special’ friends Bernard and Silvia – who stand by his silliness time and time again. Together they are the A-Team of ‘Awkward Moments’ and will hopefully will tickle your funny bits with joy.

WHY DO I FEEL UNNATURALLY ATTRACTED TO JOSEPH REEDMAN?

Oddly enough Joseph Reedman is a magnet for something and we haven’t quite figured out what or why, but so far the trailers have caused much of a stir that people are just growing mustaches in ode to his awesomeness. After various test screenings of the film we have come to a conclusion that Joseph’s mustache that may be acting out as an independent agent wooing many with its bristly charms.

SYNOPSIS

THE PROFESSIONAL IDIOT is based around the life of Joseph Reedman, he’s the guy with the yellow headband to your left, [SIMON GRAY], who is the ultimate self-assured geek/idiot. His overbearing but endearing confidence enables him to plod through life with precision and perfection, yet he is missing one key ingredient in his life, a Mrs. Joseph Reedman… despite all his efforts Joseph can’t quite figure out how to make that happen, with or without finesse.

What doesn’t help Joseph’s aspirations is the misguidance and lack of encouragement he receives from his miserable father, Keith [ROBERT ‘RAY’ CRAMPTION]. Despite the love that he has for his son, Keith is one grumpy old man who is hell bent on discouraging Joseph’s romantic pursuits. Without warning, Joseph’s one and only brother, Liam [ROBERT REITANO] – the suave black sheep of the family, turns up on Joseph’s doorstep after witnessing a murder. Initially Joseph is reluctant to help Liam out, knowing that their father would go ballistic if he helps

Liam, yet he risks being ostracized when he realizes that Liam may be able to help him attain the ultimate prize. Liam has always had a knack with the ladies and Joseph sees the potential of Liam being his ticket to girlfriend nirvana. Joseph agrees to help his brother in exchange for help in picking up the woman of his dreams, the office hottie Sophie [SUZANNE DERVISH-ALI]. The two brothers pair up to achieve their respective goals and they run into a wave of unexpected and silly problems.

Overall THE PROFESSIONAL IDIOT is bright and colorful film with oodles of idiotic moments that will make you laugh, cringe, or both.
