What happens when your lies suddenly come
Full of It tells the comedic story of Sam Leonard (Ryan
Pinkston), a 17-year-old who has been uprooted from one town
to another his entire life. Shy, lonely, and a bit of a nerd
who is as crazy about math as he is the Beach Boys, Sam is
beginning his senior year at yet another new school. He
desperately wants to fit in at Bridgeport High, but things
get off to a dismal start when he becomes the brunt of a
cruel joke led by ‘cool kid’ Kyle Plunkett (Joshua Close).
Already feeling crushed and defeated on his very first day,
Sam decides to seek the advice of the school’s guidance
counselor (Craig Kilborn). Jaded and indifferent, the
counselor tells Sam to lie about everything – who he is,
where he’s from, what he’s capable of – in order to fit in
and be a winner. The impressionable Sam figures he has
nothing to lose, and embraces this bad advice.
At first, he is hesitant to lie. After all, his upstanding
parents (John Carroll Lynch and Cynthia Stevenson) have
raised him to always tell the truth. So at first he begins
slowly telling harmless lies to impress fellow students.
When he starts to see positive results, the lies become
habitual, eventually becoming more elaborate and outrageous.
Then one day, for some reason the tall tales start to come
true. Sam unexpectedly finds himself becoming the big man on
campus and facing a whole new set of problems that he never
bargained for. The result is a hilarious, fresh new spin on
the timeless and universal message of honesty being the best
