TODAY’S NEW RELEASE: MARGARINE WARS
Ever had a bad day and needed something, anything, to turn that day around? Ever felt like you needed to laugh and just escape to a happier place because you are fighting off tears or frustration? Well, viewers, I had such a day, then “Margarine Wars” came along and changed absolutely everything for me! This is a feel-better, feel-good, no, feel-fantastic, light hearted comedy that will not just make you laugh but transport you to another time. The time period is 1967, it is the Summer of Love and for Howard Shmear it is also the unforgettable summer of his life. Howard leaves New York to set his sights on an acting pursuit in San Francisco, but unfortunately crashes his bus into a cow along the way in Wisconsin. This traveling hiccup turns into so much more, life moves slower in the country, people and businesses have a different way of life in the country, and Howard’s bus debacle leaves him there to learn of the people of this small dairy town and to learn more about himself. He soon discovers the insipid law that margarine is illegal in Butterfield, and becomes the “margarine pusher” so to speak. What ensues is utter hilarity and many poignant moments that will make you completely forget you are having a day other than an utterly fantastic one!
