To succeed, they'll need to negotiate an army of publicists, agents, producers and assistants who surround the star so Brian can pop the question. The film was shot in a month because 'Brian Herlzinger' wanted to return the video camera to Circuit City under their 30-Day Return Policy to save the cost of renting a camera.
As a result of the widely publicized move, Circuit City introduced a 'restocking fee' to be deducted from any future customer refunds.
But that doesn't stop Brian and his film school pals from doing everything they can think of to convince Barrymore to go out with him - and documenting their quest along the way.
Equipped with a video camera they have to return to Circuit City in 30 days and the $1,100 Brian won on a game show (where the winning answer was, prophetically, "Drew Barrymore"), they've got one month to accomplish their mission.
Now, 20 years later he's decided to try to fulfill his lifelong dream by asking her for a date.

Not a promising first step in figuring out if there’s accuracy behind what I’m watching.
Then I searched for the fishing charter accident driving the whole plot behind the show. In this day and age, and with the people shown in the introductory “video” being white adults speaking English, there’s no way this wouldn’t have been covered more extensively in the local, national and international news. After using the powers of the internet to search for the past 90 minutes, I’m decently convinced this show is for dramatic effect only and has no real scientific value. All Discovery Channel needs to do to thrill viewers is show real footage of the creatures up close, not drum up some ridiculous and currently unverifiable story to capture an audience.
