Meeting "The Almost Guys" - almostby Euan Kerr, Minnesota Public Radio
At a time when many Hollywood movies celebrate larger-than-life characters engaged in cataclysmic events, Eric Fleming and Andrea Michaud wanted to do something a little different. They wanted to make a comedy about ordinary people.
St. Paul, Minn. — The result is "The Almost Guys," a movie about two bumbling repo men who get caught up in a kidnapping plot.
It did well on the festival circuit. Now, Fleming and Michaud are back in Minnesota, where she grew up, showing the film and talking about their experiences making it.
There is a lot to talk about: Michaud produced the film, while Fleming wrote, directed and played the lead. They also plan to be married.
Fleming and Michaud told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr the idea began with certain people he'd met over the years.
