Review:

Fred H. Tuttle is the man with a plan. At 73 years of age, the retiree discovers he cannot pay his property taxes and that his elderly father and old car need costly attention. Unable to resume dairy farming, Tuttle follows his father's advice and runs for U. S. Congress, because it is the highest paying job an inexperienced man with a 10th-grade education can get.

This spoof documentary follows the travails of Tuttle's Regressive Party as it slowly steals away votes from slick incumbent William Blachly. The public quickly figures out that Tuttle may be a charming old coot with no political sense, but Blachly is at best an ineffective congressman and at worst a thief. While Tuttle is kissing babies and attending fairs, Blachly stoops to spying on Tuttle and setting him up for a scandal. Tuttle and Blachly play themselves. Fake news shows, TV advertisements, and campaign strategists pepper the documentary with realism. Although it is a comedy, the video launches some very fair criticisms at the campaign and election processes. Note that after the success of this film, Fred Tuttle really did run for Congress! --Margaret Griffis

From the Back Cover:

A film by John O'Brien "Hilarious!" - The New York Times "Man with a Plan does for New England what Fargo did for Minnesota!" - Time Out Magazine He's been featured on the front page of The New York Times, in People Magazine, The New Yorker, on National Public Radio, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. His performance as a Congressional candidate in this film was so inspiring, he received hundreds of write-in votes in the real General Election. He represents a vanishing way of life in America. He'll make you laugh. He's Fred Tuttle, the Man with a Plan. "It used to be that Vermont had two celebrities, Ben and Jerry, the ice cream millionaires. Now it's Ben and Jerry - and Fred." - The New York Times
