Slip & Fall -- This is the trailer for Slip and Fall, a comedy about Danny Cuemdumpstier (Sam Cohan), a timid and naive law student who just wants to graduate as he is about to complete his final semester at an esteemed law school. Better yet, waiting for him is a job at one of Boston s most prestigious law firms. But Danny s parents are both dead and his sweet but oblivious grandmother with whom he lives was suckered into spending his last semester s tuition on a massive satellite dish that leaves her with 7400 channels. Danny and his grandmother are now broke, unable to pay for the trailer, law school and forced to live at a 30-degree angle as the dish sits atop the trailer. The worst part is the school s petty and miserable Dean Dickman (Andrew Divoff) refuses to sign Danny s tuition waiver form, which would allow him to graduate before his tuition is paid. The Dean leaves Danny in the perilous position of losing his degree, job and home. Danny appears doomed, but not according to his father figure and school janitor, Jerry (William Forsythe). Jerry promises a skeptical and morally dubious Danny that staging a fake 'slip and fall' on the school's campus is the remedy. He has the lawyer, doctor and chiropractor all lined up to dupe the insurance company and get Danny his money. In desperate straits, Danny finally agrees, completely unaware of what awaits him. Not only does he have to navigate between his domineering girlfriend Henryka (Zofia Goszynska) and the one whom he truly loves, Sarah (Marie Polizzano), but also through his muscle-head lawyer, a doctor with an online degree, and a chiropractic center that doles out favors to its clients. The rupture comes as Danny s new girlfriend, Sarah, erroneously thinks she caught him cheating with Henryka, and the Dean who uncovers the scheme and assembles a massive staff of law school litigators to take Danny down. Danny s degree job, girlfriend, home and life are all suddenly in jeopardy.
