You know, I am way over 12 years-old, but there’s nothing that puts me back into that immature 12 year-old mentality like a good prank call.
We meet a frustrated office worker drone who has been pushed to the brink. When he can no longer take it, a wrong number leads to an outburst that is like a revelation. It feels good to sound off passionately using expletives. He likes it and he wants more. What begins as just some fun dial pushing with some screaming “fuck-yous,” turns into a daily routine which quickly becomes an obsession. When an asshole cuts this guy off in the parking lot, he has no idea who he has just crossed. In Michæl Corleone fashion, our office drone sets up a scenario to rid himself of all the dickheads he encounters including his shithead boss.
Sick, twisted and laugh out loud funny, “Crank Calls” is my kind of entertainment.
