Movie Info

Matthew Miele directs this tale about a mysterious homeless guy. Jake (Ernie Hudson) lives relatively contently in his homeless routine -- he wakes in the morning, plays the bongos for change, and collects dog feces. Everything seems hunky-dory, as it were, until he encounters Cameron, who is attempting suicide. Jake takes the guy under his wing and shows him the ropes of life on streets.

Audience Reviews for Everything's Jake


I must admit that this movie exceeded my expectations and provided me with a laugh filled story with above average character development. Of course there are several aspects that needed to be address and some loose ends that were never tied up but in the end, it's a good story with enough resolution to leave the audience pleased.
