Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly) and Rosario Dawson (Men In Black II) star in this hilarious dot-comedy of errors about five social misfits who set out to make history - and wind up making millions! When burn-out marketing exec Andy Casper (Garcia) decides to "create something", he recruits an oddball trio dysfunctional geniuses to design the world's first $99 computer. The project proves hopeless until Andy sexy neighbor (Dawson) steps in to rekindle his creativity and add a few sparks of her own. Rich laughs and side-splitting gags, The First $20 Million proves anything is possible if you believe in yourself and your friends?no matter how strange they are!
Based on Po Bronson's novel, the computer comedy The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest is a Revenge of the Nerds for the 2000s. Andy (Coyote Ugly's Adam Garcia) is a Silicon Valley marketing executive who decides to chuck it all--the money, the superficial girlfriend, etc.--for the chance to work at high-tech think tank La Honda. Head genius Francis (Just Shoot Me's Enrico Colantoni) doesn't like the looks of the slick new guy and challenges him to come up with a $99 laptop. To his amazement, Andy and his ragtag band of socially inept misfits (Ethan Suplee, Jake Busey, and Anjul Nigam) actually succeed, but then Francis tries to take all the credit--and the profits. If the Jon Favreau-adapted story is largely implausible, it's entertaining nonetheless, and Men in Black II's Rosario Dawson is charming as the free-spirited artist who inspires Andy and the gang. --Kathleen C.
