New Release: Spooner DVD

Spooner movie scene

Matthew Lillard and Nora Zehetner get wet in Spooner.

Spooner, a 2009 romantic comedy starring Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo), Nora Zehetner (TV’s Mad Men) and Christopher McDonald (Barry Munday), was released on DVD on March 15, 2011, by Maya Entertainment.

In the movie, Lillard plays Herman Spooner, a used car salesman who still lives at home with his parents. Spooner is fairly set in his unfulfilling routine, but turning 30 marks a hard deadline set by his mom and dad to get a place of his own. To top it off, Spooner’s boss is putting on the pressure to bring in some numbers, or face the chopping block.

Headed for one of the worst days of his life, Spooner meets the girl of his dreams, Rose (Zehetner) and, forgoing all other priorities, sets out to win her heart. But on their perfect date, Rose breaks the news that she is about to leave for the Philippines.

Directed by Drake Doremus, Spooner played the domestic film festival circuit a couple of years back but essentially premiered on DVD.

No special features are on the DVD, which carries a list price of $27.98.
