Keywords: Comedy

A washed-up former basketball sensation looking to recover from a lingering knee injury seeks the services of a run-down Los Angeles gym.

ABSTRACT
Chris Long, a once-promising college basketball star who saw his dreams of millions made playing in the NBA vanish into the void of minimum-wage work overnight following a career-ending knee injury, takes up a job at a gym in a run-down Los Angeles strip mall with a view to rehabbing his ailment. What follows is a lowbrow takeoff on 80s formulaic "bro" comedies as Chris struggles with an owner bent on turning the gym into the focus of a reality show as part of a romp filled with crude jokes and sight gags.
