Editors Note
Note Scott Prendergast makes his feature-film debut as an actor, director, and writer with the quirky black comedy KABLUEY. Prendergast stars as Salman, a ne'er-do-well with no money and no place to live. He moves in with his sister-in-law, Leslie (Lisa Kudrow), promising to take care of her kids while she works; her husband (his brother), a member of the National Guard, is still in Iraq, his tour extended yet again. Unfortunately for Salman, his nephews, Lincoln (Landon Henninger) and Cameron (Cameron Wofford), are unholy, unstoppable terrors. Wanting him to get back on his own two feet, Leslie finds Salman a job at her very strange, hilariously absurd company, BlueNexion, where Salman must get inside a big blue costume and hand out flyers in the middle of a nearly deserted highway. But when he finds out a little too much about Leslie, he is put into an awkward situation that he's not sure he can get out of easily. Prendergast excels in the role of sad-sack Salman; whether he's sweating inside his costume, listening to an annoying chatterbox on the bus, or getting dinner ready for the kids, his deadpan, pathetically funny look is reminiscent of Buster Keaton's. Kudrow is in fine form as Leslie, a troubled mother who seems fed up with her life. The strong supporting cast also includes Conchata Ferrell as Salman's perpetually screaming loudmouthed boss, Angela Sarafyan as a weird grocery-store clerk, and Teri Garr as a somewhat deranged woman who lost her savings with BlueNexion and takes it out on the company's big blue mascot. Roddy Bottum's charming score keeps things moving at just the right pace. KABLUEY is a charming, offbeat look at life during wartime in America, seen from a unique perspective.
Los Angeles Times "[With] Prendergasts's melancholic, quirky humor and eye for comically scenic desolation....[Kudrow is] captivating..." 07/11/2008
New York Times "Mr. Prendergast, an alumnus of the Groundlings comedy troupe, wrote and directed KABLUEY, which is very funny in a ghastly way." 07/04/2008
