Run Time: 74 minutes
When a video of Ron drunkenly trying to jump an open draw bridge goes viral, he becomes an internet star. Catching the attention of a shady manager, Ron is given the opportunity of becoming a stuntman on the next blockbuster starring Holland’s most successful actress, Bo Maerten. Ron ignores the offer at first, until he finds out his wife has been sleeping with pretty much the whole town. Not wanting to lose her, he agrees to her insane ultimatum: if he’s charming enough to woo Bo into bed, she’ll stay his wife. Ron ultimately agrees to accept the stuntman offer, getting as hammered as possible in order to carry out such ludicrous stunts as stumbling off a building and getting thrown through a window by a guy in a gorilla costume. Will he survive his destructive attempts to seduce Bo, or will he literally crash and burn? RON GOOSSENS is a fall down, blacked-out, sloppy comedy that will leave both you and Ron in stitches.
