Johnny is about to trade his dream job in sports talk radio for a much higher paying gig with his fiance’s father in New York City. However, the weekend before the interview, his uncle Terry treats him to a weekend in the Hamptons where he meets the lovely Brooke, who challenges Johnny to rethink his future.


“Nice Guy Johnny” was one of the first films to embrace the new digital distribution opportunities, like Video on Demand as the primary platform for releasing independent films. Made for a production budget of $25 thousand, the film marked a return to the micro-budget approach Burns used on “The Brothers McMullen” but also insured the film profitability.
