Thumbs Up!

FARCE. Two movie critics, Edward Nickel and Michael Gilbert, attend a film festival auction in hope of buying the white disco suit John Travolta wore in Saturday Night Fever. Nickel outbids Gilbert for the prized artifact, but Gilbert manages to purchase the disco suit worn by John Travolta’s overweight stuntman. But the intoxicating effects of their winning bids wear off when the duo receive threatening notes that read “Stop the movie reviews, or else” and discover that their beloved disco suits are missing. Suddenly Nickel and Gilbert find themselves with a real life mystery on their hands. Determined to get their disco suits back, the two set out to investigate four chief suspects: a giant green dinosaur, two teen wizards, and a movie starlet. As Nickel and Gilbert infiltrate the seedy side of the movie business, Gilbert is kidnapped, brainwashed into being a wizard, and viciously attacked by horrifying marionettes. And then things really get out of hand! The two kidnap an egotistical movie director, become fugitives from the law, and incite a horde of nerdy movie fans.
