What's it about

The film is the story of a depressed teen struggling for acceptance. High school student Janet Taylor (Adah Glassbourg) feels she has to be the class clown in order to gain the acceptance of her peers. Only through her writing does she reveal her true feelings--that she fears people won't like her as she truly is. For a school essay on "Why People Laugh," Janet visits a comedy club, where she meets dishwasher and aspiring comedian Tony Marone (Jim Carrey). Tony's act is a dud, but he still plans to enter the club's upcoming Battle of the Buffoons contest.

Janet writes some new material for Tony and coaches him on his delivery. Meanwhile, Tony tries to help Janet overcome her lack of self-confidence. He urges Janet to be herself rather than putting on an act. The night of the contest, Tony feigns laryngitis and convinces Janet to take his place on stage. Janet gets off to a shaky start, but eventually overcomes her fears and wins over the audience.

Writer Michael Glassbourg wrote this story as a showcase for his sister. The titled was changed to "Rubberface" for the video release.
