Synopsis by Hal Erickson

2 Idiots in Hollywood is an expansion of the cult theatrical production of the same name. Jim McGrath and Jeff Doucette play a pair of star-struck guys with all sorts of million-dollar showbiz schemes. Two roadblocks stand in the way of their success: (1) They live in Dayton, Ohio; and (2) they're terminally stupid. In a rare moment of lucidity, the boys decide head to Hollywood to seek their fortune. In the course of their 10 day westward journey, our heroes meet an assortment of eccentrics, including a crazed cop with a pet shark and an outer-space robot. 2 Idiots in Hollywood was written and directed by Stephen Tobolowsky, the Texas-born character actor who previously masterminded the 1986 laughfest True Stories.
