The Guiness Book of World Records inspired this mix of black, social comedy and barbed satire by providing the motivation for a young man to sit down in front of a TV set and try to break the world's record for continuous viewing. Mixed in with his first joking attempt to get his name in the world's record book are scenes of an actual attempt at setting new lengths in this dubious couch-potato marathon. Evidence of a certain deterioration of mental acuity after hours in front of the tube soon shows up -- the young man has become serious about breaking the TV-watching record, and an obsession begins to take hold.
