Writer/director Stephen D. Burrows pokes fun at the hilarious cutthroat world of Hollywood.
A young filmmaker navigates the tricky world and runs into a numbers of crazy people played by Jerry Stiller, Tim Matheson, Fred Willard, A.J. Benza, Abe Vigoda and Anne Meara.
Exhausted from the turmoil in Hollywood, the filmmaker goes home to snowy Milwaukee and meets the wacky tenant (Traci Elizabeth Lords) that his mother has rented his room to while she goes on vacation. So, the young filmmaker gets to compare Hollywood with Milwaukee and decide which is a saner place to live and work. Quirky and funny, "Chump Change" isn't brilliant but it does have some funny moments.
The disc is stuffed with several featurettes including audio commentary by the director, out takes and deleted scenes, interviews with Traci Lords and much more. The film is presented in wide screen enhanced for 16X9 televisions and Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
