Sappy Love Story Weekend King Getting High Fives

We’re hearing that the first showing of Weekend King, which chronicles the life of a fairly pathetic Silicon Valley programmer, was a crowd pleaser (let us know in the comments what you thought). The next showing is on May 24.

In true Hollywood style, though, everything turns out fine in the end with our hero/protagonist finding love. Bleh.

Rupert is awkward, friendless, and loveless. He’s also rich. In a quest to beat his loneliness, Rupert buys a small bankrupt town in Utah. He expects to lord over the populace but ends up contending with people that don’t buy into his newly invented confidence. But grappling with his bad investment turns out to be the key for finally finding friendship and love.
