Mr. Show co-creator David Cross makes his feature directorial debut with this dark comedy about an anxious municipal worker who becomes a viral-video superstar. Dave is a working-class father from upstate New York whose TV-addicted daughter is dating a talentless teenage rapper. Incensed by a series of perceived injustices being committed by his local government, Dave records a series of caustic rants against City Hall that spread across the Internet like wildfire. Meanwhile, a horde of benevolent Brooklyn hipsters descend upon Dave's quiet neighborhood to help him take a stand against the tyrannical powers that be. Matt Walsh, Jason Ritter, Matt Walsh, and Meredith Hagner co-star.
