At the Lake County Fair I was struck by the poster for the film "Fancypants." First I was intrigued that my nickname was now the name of a film, and then, by the fact that it starred wrestling and "They Live" superstar Rowdy Roddy Piper. The 40 folding chair section of the exhibition hall seemed to be an inauspicious opening for a movie with actual recognizable actors, (hello Robert Carradine as "Allen") but a later check on imdb showed that it actual already had a release. In September 2011 in one theatre grossing $4,962. Good News/Bad News, the screenings are free, which won't help the producers put a dent in the 1,2000,000 budget.
