How Did This Get Made: Adventures of Serial Buddies

Another Tuesday, another installment of How Did This Get Made, where I ponder over the inexplicable reality that some films actually get produced while that George Miller Justice League movie was cancelled before shooting even began. And no, you didn't just catch me in a typo with the headline. There is a distinct lack of articles in the title of today's movie. You're asking yourself: Shouldn't it be The Adventures of the Serial Buddies; The Adventures of Serial Buddies; Or even Adventure of the Serial Buddies; Hell, I'd take Adventures the of Serial the Buddies. But he more important question to ask is how this movie got made in the first place. Especially when it's got actual actors in it like Christopher "Paycheck" Lloyd, Maria Menounos, Beth Behrs, and Christopher McDonald.

Well, the answer is that the 'writer' and 'director' happens to be Menounos's boyfriend. And if you were lucky enough to catch them on Howard Stern back in 2011, you got to hear how the guy basically lives off his girlfriend's success and money and convinced her to produce something like Adventures of Serial Buddies, a movie with a trailer so bad, you'd swear it was a funny SNL sketch. But then you remember that SNL is hardly funny anymore and that this thing is real and exists.

The official synopsis is:

Gregory is a devout Catholic who wants to kill evil people in order to grant them safe passage to heaven, Gary is an assembly worker at a trophy shop who wants to kill potential trophy winners, Graham is Gary's intern who will do anything to become a trophy maker and Vinny Van Go drives a road emergency van just to make friends. A coincidental encounter forces these four dim witted rejects to join forces and embark upon an idiotic and altogether hilarious road trip adventure - encountering the likes of skinheads, fraternity jocks, sorority babes, missing children, bikers, porn-stars, clowns, and Kathie Lee Gifford! If the boys aren't careful they might just become human, in what is "the very first serial killer buddy movie!"

Gary. Graham. Gregory. Gifford. Go. Christ, if you're relying on alliteration to squeeze some laughs out of your movie, you're really struggling.
