Part-time newspaper advice columnist Alex Wiebe thinks he has it all—fame, money, the corner penthouse. But Alex gets a little more than he bargained for when his new assistant turns out to be—a talking grasshopper! Soon his carefully ordered life is turned upside-down by his new orthopteran companion, and he’s embroiled in a madcap escapade of wacky exploits, each one more zany than the last! Can Alex get a “mandible” on the ever-escalating situation, land the big promotion, and teach his diminutive underling how to become the toast of society, all while running from the Mob? It’s a comedy of OH-MY-GOD-THAT-INSECT-JUST-FUCKING-TALKED proportions!! (Canada, 71 min; rated G for gooey sentimentality, forced slapstick, and double-takes.)
