If you've seen Wayne's World or American Movie, you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect from the dumb but lovable Canadian duo at the center of Michael Dowse's 2002 mockumentary. Lifelong buddies Terry (Dave Lawrence) and Dean (Paul J. Spence) lustily pursue their limited passions—arguing, playing heavy metal, shotgunning beers, etc—until the filmmaker profiling them (Gordon Skilling) discovers that Dean has been diagnosed with cancer and decides to push the issue. Unoriginal and only sporadically funny, this shouldn't work, but it does; Spence's deceptively simple but surprisingly nuanced performance makes Dean both charming and utterly believable. The title acronym stands for “Fucked Up Beyond All Repair.” 80 min.
