Overview

A slacker tries to do the right thing for his family with unexpectedly chaotic results in this independent comedy. Salman Scott Prendergast is an out-of-work twentysomething who has few skills and fewer prospects. However, things are significantly worse for his older brother -- his National Guard unit has been called back to Iraq, and his wife, Leslie Lisa Kudrow, needs to go back to work in order to support their children. However, Leslie doesn't have anyone to look after her two sons, so when Salman learns of her sad situation, he volunteers to move in and help mind the kids. Salman quickly discovers the boys are nearly psychotic and will stop at nothing to get him out of the house, including putting sharp objects in his breakfast. With the household still short on money, Leslie helps Salman get a job, and soon he's become the corporate mascot for a failing Internet company, who pounds the pavement wearing a strange blue costume hoping to drum up interest in renting space in the corporate offices. The first feature film as writer and director for actor Scott Prendergast, Kabluey also stars Christine Taylor, Conchata Ferrell, Teri Garr, and Chris Parnell.

    more from this reviewer

    This is one of those really weird films that catches you by surprise that it actually has characters you get to know and feel for.

    Kudrow is very good in this as the wife of a National Guardsman who's term in Iraq has been extended. She really shows the strain of being behind worrying while trying to care for her children. The kids, by the way, are hilarious. Scott Prendergast doesn't talk much in this film and does such a wonderful job with physical acting that you don't feel you're missing anything. A lot of the scenes with him in the mascot suit can only be described as surreal; that blue nameless thing in the middle of an empty field, standing by the side of an empty road, etc. 'Kabluey' takes a very serious subject and story and gives you something to laugh about as you get attached to the characters.
