Plot: Lulu Danger's unsatisfying marriage takes a turn for the worse when a mysterious man from her past comes to town to perform an event called "An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn: For One Magical Night Only."
Lulu Danger leaves her dull husband Shane, and runs off with an insecure and angst-riddled gunman, hoping to meet her former love Beverley Luff Linn, a man she thought was dead, drowned in the sea many years before. But the incoherent Beverley has hooked up with a new partner, Rodney Von Donkensteiger and gone on tour with a mysterious act, ‘An Evening with Beverley Luff Linn', that promises to be ‘Magical’ for 'One Night Only.’ Completely bizarre and mostly random: Napoleon Dynamite meets Twin Peaks in a strange world of eighties fashion and faded seventies decor. With a glorious cast of leads and a supporting cast that is - to put it mildly - on the quirky side, this is the best comedy I've seen in a very long time.
