Frank X. Sommers & Frank Caruso, "Going Great White"

Frank X. Sommers & Frank Caruso, "Going Great White"

Premiere date: Dec 10, 2008

Suppose the funniest movie of the year didn't come from Hollywood. Suppose it came out of the middle of nowhere. Or maybe the middle of Wisconsin. Two filmmakers, Frank G. Caruso and Frank X. Sommers, with nothing more then a shoestring budget and tearing a page out of the Christopher Guest book of comedy, have crafted a deft satire of the American Dream, skewering everything from homeschooling to fitness programs to the funeral industry along the way. Going Great White is a zany journey into the desperate world of pyramid sales schemes. It's "Best In Show" meets Amway.
