Super Sucker (2002)
Super Sucker is a 2002 film featuring Jeff Daniels, Harve Presnell, and Kate Peckham.
Filmed in Jackson, Michigan, Daniels and Presnell play Fred Barlow and Winslow Schnaebelt, the heads of two different groups of door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesmen who are competing for the same territory. Their rivalry becomes so fierce that the president of the manufacturer of the product, Mr. Suckerton, decides that for the good of the company, the town will have only one group of sales representatives. Desperate, and always the underdog, Barlow suggests a winner-take-all sales contest to determine who gets the territory. Well behind Schnaebelt from the very start, Barlow's sales surge when he learns of his wife's non-traditional use of a long forgotten vacuum attachment.
The film, written by Daniels, won the 2002 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival audience award for Best Feature but never obtained national distribution.
