Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti star as a pair of shady French Canadians who scheme to make some quick cash by selling Christmas trees in New York City. Cynical con-artist Dennis (Giamatti) has just been released from a Montreal prison when he learns that local ladies man Rene (Rudd) has been romancing his ex-wife. Though the pair trades blows in a bar fight, remorseful Rene extends an invitation for Dennis to join him in traveling to New York City, and selling Christmas trees to the high-rolling locals. Just as the pair arrives in the city and stakes their claim on a busy street corner, however, a chance encounter between Dennis and the wife of a wealthy dentist leads to a whiole new get-rich-quick scheme. Sally Hawkins co-stars in a comedy written by Melissa James Gibson, and directed by Phil Morrison (Junebug).
