WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Robert and Mark (Weigel & McCormack) are two pretty normal guys except they’ve never gotten over their adolescent worship of everything Star Trek. At first, they are elated to meet their idol Bill (Shatner), until they discover he has just as many human flaws as the rest of us. Now what do they do? Free Enterprise is a very funny movie; don’t miss it!
