Mangus! | Review - aGLIFF 2011 (Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival)

Director: Ash Christian Writer: Ash Christian Starring: Ryan Boggus, Heather Matarazzo, Jennifer Coolidge, Deborah Theaker, Leslie Jordan, Charles Solomon Jr., Peter S. Williams, John D. Montoya Mangus Spedgwick's (Ryan Boggus) destiny is to be his fictional hometown of Rivercity's annual production of Jesus Christ Spectacular, that is. It is a long-standing family tradition for the Spedgwick males to play the leading role in Jesus Christ Spectacular -- the poor man’s version of Jesus Christ Superstar -- and Mangus appears to be a shoe-in to keep that tradition alive. A freak accident renders Mangus handicapped -- or handicapable -- and the people of Rivercity vote against having a cripple perform in the role of Jesus. All the while, Mangus' father (Charles Solomon Jr.) is called to duty in Iraq and Mangus' evil stepmother (Deborah Theaker) sends Mangus to live with his mother (Jennifer Coolidge) and half-sister (Heather Matarazzo) in their trailer park home.

Is Guest Done with the World of Mockumentary?

There's not much that I love more than the comedic mind of Christopher Guest. No man, not even retro Mel Brooks, has made me cry with laughter like Guest -- the wacky dancing of Corky St. Clair, the dysfunctional yuppiedom of the Swans, the bleary sadness of Mitch Cohen, and the plastic surgery of Marilyn Hack. But For Your Consideration might be the end.

In a discussion with MTV, Jane Lynch revealed some good, and not so good news about the world-o-Guest. On the bright side, it seems like Waiting for Guffman might be headed to Broadway, which is just about the best idea to come out of the world of movies-on-Broadway.

Granted, this is only rumor at this point,
