This is wild, folks. In researching another story, I ran across a 2004 movie that I'd never heard of, though it featured Jane Lynch and Steve Carrel. It even managed to make $10 million opening against another Steve Carrel film, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, so it's not exactly obscure.

More than that, it also stars quite a few names you probably don't know, but whose faces you'd recognize: Sam Huntington, for instance, who is in the American version of the television series, "Being Human." Also, Alexa Vega, star of the Spy Kids franchise; Sara Paxton, who was in The Last House on the Left remake and the upcoming Shark Night 3D; Brie Larson, the sister in "The United States of Tara"; Scout Taylor-Compton, star of the Halloween remake; Hunter Parish (Silas in "Weeds"), and even Douglas Smith, the older brother in "Big Love."

It's not exactly the Almost Famous, Empire Records or School Ties of "He/She Was In That?" films (H/T Joanna), but I thought it notable as a film I'd never heard of with so many recognizable faces (not to mention Jeff Garlin).

Has anyone heard of it? Seen it? Own it?
