Directed by
Peter Cattaneo

This comedy from The Full Monty director Peter Cattaneo stars Rainn Wilson as a man whose life has well and truly fallen apart. Twenty years previously, Robert 'Fish' Fishman was heavy rock band Vesuvius's drummer. But when Vesuvius were offered a support slot for Whitesnake on the condition that they ditch their drummer, Fish found himself packing his sticks. Two decades later, he's been sacked from his dead-end job, ditched by his girlfriend and forced to move into his sister's attic. However, he unexpectedly - and unwittingly - gets another bite at stardom while preparing for a one-off gig with his 18-year-old nephew Josh's band. The only place Fish can find to rehearse in is very stuffy and humid, so - because he's on his own - he chooses to play naked. But he doesn't realise he's being recorded. And when the clip is posted on the web it goes viral.
