There has never been a football team like the Maine Lobsters! There will never be again! What does it take to turn a losing pro-football team around? Sumo wrestlers protecting the champion quarterback? Come on!? In an act of desperation, the coach (Eddie Mekka aka The Big Ragu) of The Maine Lobsters, a pro football team that has lost 32 games in a row, travels to Japan to buy a school of sumo wrestlers. His intention? To bring the humongous wrestlers back to Portland to replace his inept offensive line. The key wrestler is played by Yama (Zoolander 2). Hail Mary! is unusually produced with a combination of hilarious live action and uniquely developed brush-stroke animation. The football sequences were filmed on green-screen and back-dropped into the Buffalo Bills Ralph Wilson Stadium, Sumo cheerleaders, fans and all! There's never been a "family football comedy" like Hail Mary! There will never be again! "Will become a cult hit" - Marty Meltz, film critic, Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram

Press Quotes

Will become a cult hit...Superb sense of comic irony and creative situations to move the plot. Intro of Sumos to the art of the sport provides very good humor, very funny.

     —Marty Meltz, Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram

Presents a total departure from the current crop of motion pictures. It relies heavily on strong visuals and a distinctive visual style. Simply put, the story-line is exceptionally funny with huge commercial potential.

     —Ron Draper Cinematographer (Halloween 5, Spitfire)

A killer idea here. First, it's fun, crazy, fantastical energy. It reminds me a bit of 'Shaolin Soccer', which I loved. This world isn't constrained by the rules that govern ours. Their sports prowess is so great as to transcend the boundaries of physics...

     —Colin Theys, Film Director

Funniest sports' comedy I've ever read

     —Kimberly Pettit , Momentum Entertainment
