The Chateau

2 - A few years before he played the trash-talking womanizer, Jay, in Judd Apatow's 2005 box office hit, The 40 Year Old Virgin, and even more years before he romanced Meagan Good in Think Like A ManRomany Malco - the American-born Trinidadian, once a member of hip-hop group, College Boyz, whose big break came when he starred as MC Hammer in a VH1 telepic - co-starred in a low-budget, indie comedy flick, alongside Paul Rudd, called The Chateau, about 2 American brothers Graham and Allen Granville (Rudd & Malco, who's character is adopted), who learn that they have inherited a chateau in France, courtesy of their great uncle who recently died.

They travel to France to claim their inheritance, but, of course, very little goes as planned, as they are ill-equipped to communicate with the chateau's staff - a property that's burdened with debt, forcing the brothers to find a buyer for it, leaving a bewildered staff resorting to desperate measures to prevent them from selling the place.

It's actually a decent indie comedy; My understanding is that there really was no script, meaning much of it was improvised, and it was shot relatively cheaply and quickly, with a handheld digital camcorder (before DV became all-the-rage), evident in the film's "noisy" images, making it seem almost documentary-like.
