Two naive straight guys find themselves at the helm of a gay marriage musical.
Super Awesome! is a buddy comedy about a couple of down and out buds, Mark and Gary, given one last crack at achieving their dreams. Out of the blue they find themselves with $250K to create a gay-marriage musical for Broadway. It’s Rocky meets SuperBad set against the hilarious backdrop of two naive, straight guys hilariously struggling to write a musical about an issue they know nothing about. As the clock ticks down to opening night and the whole production inches towards collapsing, Mark and Gary ultimately are illuminated to the significance of gay marriage and the potential their musical has to make a change… but is it too little too late? Super Awesome! is one of the first films to use boundary pushing comedy to explore the universally relevant theme of marriage equality.
