Max Anderson

Created by Michael DeSanto

"My girlfriend won't talk to me, the police won't listen to me, and the mob is trying to kill me. My life is a mess. Again."

Michael DeSanto hasn't heard of you either.

He wrote, directed, and did the cinematography and some of the music for the low, low budget (allegedly $2,800) almost-straight-to-streaming Max Anderson, Private Eye.

The 2013 indie comedy that revolves around a twenty-something loser from Toledo, Ohio, MAX ANDERSON, who suffers one too many defeats in life (his long-suffering girlfriend Kristin decides to dump him). Inspired by a movie he saw on television, he decides to chuck it all to become a private eye.

Naturally, Max is totally incompetent, and ends up with far more than he bargained for, although he does manage -- despite the bumbling -- to save the day in the end.

Yep, we've seen this plot before, and we'll see it again.

And just in case anyone objects to any done-to-death clichés or stereotypes in the script, it's a paroday, see? We've seen that gambit before, as well.
