The Sidekick (2013) 28min · Short, Comedy · 18 July 2013
From director Michael J. Weithorn ("The King of Queens", A Little Help) and writer/star Rob Benedict ("Supernatural", Waiting...) comes the story of Max McCabe, career sidekick. In a world populated by fairly unremarkable superheroes and supervillains (portrayed by an ensemble of comedic actors including Ron Livingston, Lizzy Caplan, Jordan Peele, Martin Starr, Jason Ritter, Sam McMurray, Ike Barinholtz, Josh Meyers, Laura Silverman and Fred Stoller), Max McCabe (Benedict) has thrived for years as right hand man to legendary superhero Captain Wonder (Livingston) - carrying his boss's golden lasso and yelling things like, "Look out!" and "Here, catch!" But when Max, now pushing 40, begins to grow lazy and indifferent in the performing of even these minor tasks, he is unceremoniously fired and cast adrift - quickly discovering that society has little demand for an aging ex-professional buddy. Too old to compete with the up-and-comers and totally lacking any tangible "real world" skills, Max teeters on the verge of total breakdown. Ultimately though, Max will find new life through the eyes of the cute and quirky Bailey (Caplan), an elementary school teacher whose compassion helps Max discover that there is a place for him in the real world after all. THE SIDEKICK is a fresh comedic take on the superhero genre, as well as an allegory about the struggle to find your purpose in life even as you are being... repurposed. - Written by Rob Benedict
