Summary: An office screwball pretends to be a mentally challenged athlete in order to "fix" the Special Olympics in this raucous comedy. Johnny Knoxville stars as the incompetent but good-hearted Steve Barker, who--through a bizarre series of events--finds himself in need of money to help a former co-worker get his dismembered fingers reattached. His shady uncle (Brian Cox) concocts a devious plan: have Steve enter the Special Olympics and beat the odds-on favorite so they can win a big wager. Just one problem: Steve, a.k.a. "Jeffy," can barely keep up with his competitors! Katherine Heigl (TV's 'Grey's Anatomy') co-stars as a pretty volunteer who captures "Jeffy's" heart. Directed by Barry W. Blaustein; screenplay by Ricky Blitt. (PG13) (AC,AL)
