Help! I’m Trapped In A Movie

The movie Help! I’m Trapped In A Movie follows Tom, a man who wakes up in his dream of one day being the star of a hollywood movie, but turns out to be a real nightmare. Tom, along with fictional best friend (who he’s never met before) Russell, must figure out how to live out Tom’s movie in order to release him. After winning his trust, Russell takes Tom to a library to find a Filmmaking For Dumb-Dumbs book to figure out how to end Tom’s nightmare. After a chance encounter with Laura the Lovely Librarian, Russell realizes Tom is in a romantic comedy. The mission then becomes to use the Filmmaking for Dumb-Dumbs book to guide Tom to completing his rom-com mission with Laura in order to end the movie and release Tom.
