Sherman's Way is a comedy-drama independent film starring James LeGros, Enrico Colantoni, Lacey Chabert, Donna Murphy, Brooke Nevin, and Michael Shulman. The film was directed by Craig Saavedra, written by Thomas R. Nance, and produced by Starry Night Entertainment. Sherman's Way completed principal photography in 2007 and was shot in Manhattan, New York, Clear Lake, California, and Los Angeles, California.
The life of Yale law student Sherman (Michael Shulman, Party of Five) takes an unexpected turn when he decides to follow his girlfriend’s (Lacey Chabert, Not Another Teen Movie) advice and take more chances in life. She meant their relationship. But Sherman’s new spontaneity lands him in the car seat next to Palmer (James LeGros, Sleeper Cell, Ally McBeal), a washed-up, cheerfully eccentric former Olympic athlete.
Dumped and cut off from his mother’s funds, Sherman has to travel with Palmer to Southern California for an important job opportunity.
