As child actors, Mel and Fred were beaten and whipped by an imperious screenwriter, Fritz Frobisher. Now the elderly Fritz is to appear at a tee-shirt signing ceremony in Monument Valley, AZ, where his great films were made. Still living in LA and seeking work as actors, Mel and Fred decide to go to Monument Valley and give Fritz a drubbing. Since neither of them has a working car, they invite Mel's estranged daughter, Delilah, to give them a ride. Dir: Alex Cox, 96 min., USA, 2007. 5:00pm
