Plot Summary

  • In this slapstick comedy takeoff on Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a mild-mannered sewage worker meets up with some cuddly extra-terrestrials traveling to earth in a giant pie. As he copes with his obsession, singing mailboxes, truck radios that spout bubbles, and one pie in the face after another, lead our hero to the Sara Loo pie factory and his close encounter of the nerd kind. With special effects reminiscent of Fractured Flickers, Closet Cases recreates and parodies all the memorable scenes of the high budget original.
