    My Inflatable Friend: the Confessions of Rollo Hemphill

    Trying to make your girlfriend jealous with a life-sized rubber doll might be a bad idea. A reformed hacker-turned-slacker, twenty-something Rollo Hemphill fantasizes about becoming a top-forty DJ. Unfortunately, he has more talent than ambition. He’s settled for a menial job as a car jockey at “The Wuthering Palms,” a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills. Proximity to all that glitz and glamour soon stirs his attraction to Felicia Ferrulo, the Sicilian hottie who works in the hotel beauty shop. When Felicia doesn’t give him a nod, much less a chance, Rollo devises a desperate plan. It involves dressing up a life-sized doll to look like one of the hotel’s reclusive megastar residents and conspicuously driving the fake woman around town in borrowed vehicles. Inspiring jealousy is his goal, but it quickly gets waaaaaaay out of hand. Rollo’s clever scheme backfires with stunning success, causing him to fall upward with dizzying speed – as he rockets toward the stars but away from the girl of his dreams.
