Results, directed by Andrew Bujalski
Trevor, played with smarmy honesty and (his own) Australian accent by Guy Pearce, owns a gym and life philosophy institute called Power 4 Life. The mantras he peddles are absurd, but he proffers them with the utmost seriousness, especially when the client has as much money as flab from which to be separated. He finds both in Kevin Corrigan's Danny, who walks into Trevor's gym in Austin, Texas, ready to spend a lot of money. Danny, we learn, has come into an unexpected inheritance and throws his money around, for example offering $200 for someone to come to his house to make his TV and cable box work together, or for another person to bring him a nice cat.
