LolliLove was the first feature film I ever
produced. It's about a wealthy but severely
misguided married couple (Jenna Fischer
and James Gunn
), who set out to make a
difference in the lives of the homeless by
starting a charity that hands out lollipops to
homeless people. Not just any old lollipops,
mind you, but ones with wrappers
emblazoned with James' artwork...which is
designed to inspire them to live better lives,
get jobs, use birth control, etc.
It's a "mockumentary" that takes satiric aim at
wealthy types who get involved in charitable
causes for ultimately selfish and self-serving
reasons. It stars my friends (and
then-married couple) James Gunn
the Dead, Slither
) and Jenna Fischer
