Hutch (Chris Redd) is an irresponsible slacker who is obsessed with workouts and women. It's 4 years after leaving college and he's still unemployed. His mother (Vivica A. Fox) has had enough and kicks him out of her house. His friends are unwilling to take in the loser. Big Mike (Mel Rodriguez) gives him a job as a counsellor at a failing health camp for kids and institutes a $5k competition for the counsellor whose kids lose the most pounds. Charlie and Abby are fellow counsellors.
There is an annoying jerk in Hutch without the joy of a fun clown. There is a potential for dark comedy but this is strictly trying to be traditional feel-good underdog comedy. It doesn't really work. Then Hutch does an 180 in the middle which only suggests that he's the wrong character at the beginning. If he could be someone else... If it could be a different character... I don't know how to fix this. Hutch needs to be an obsessive gym rat. The opening section should be him at the gym failing to be a trainer. No. No. Forget that. He should be Bill Murray in Meatballs. Alright, Chris Redd can't be Bill Murray. I don't know how to fix this.
