Judd Nelson (Airheads, TV's "Suddenly Susan") and Bill Paxton (Titanic, U-571) star in this cult comedy classic! Garbage man Marty tries his hand at standup comedy, failing miserably until a third arm mysteriously grows from his back. Gus, his accordion player friend, figures out a way to use thenew arm and gets them signed with a sleazy talent agent. Just when success seems near, Marty's girlfriend leaves him - can the arm be far behind? Directed and written by Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City).
