Remarkable Power! 

Beautiful dreamers and schemers intersect in this murder-comedy set in L.A.

A number of seemingly unrelated threads intertwine in Brandon Beckner's wacky ensemble comedy that pokes fun at a bunch of wannabe somebodies in Los Angeles. From the murder of a struggling TV talk-show host (Kevin Nealon) and a self-improvement program called Remarkable Power! to a Jewish gangster with a taste for baseball and a private investigator (Tom Arnold) who sees more than he should -- drugs, cash, video and an inconvenient death all tumble together. There's not much fresh ground broken here -- the plot supports a single ridiculous idea ya gotta believe in -- and a few laughs notwithstanding, TV, drug-dealers and self-improvement scams are pretty easy targets. Mon., March 2, through Sat., March 7. Carmike 10, South Hills Village; and Wynnsong 12, Delmont.
