Dee Dee Rutherford (Lisa Ann Walter - The Parent Trap, Bruce Almighty) has never been able to figure out what her father, Bill (Kurtwood Smith - That 70's Show, Dead Poet's Society), wants from her. Like oil and water they've lived essentially separate lives for the past 15 years - Bill running his Fortune 500 company from the city and Dee Dee on the dole, chasing an endless series of outlandish adventures from his summer home. Now, on the eve of his retirement, Bill finds he's got one piece of unfinished business: to finally make an upstanding woman of his brash, neglected, and undisciplined daughter. But in laying down the law, he learns Dee Dee's capable of a lot more than he ever knew and soon finds his tactics are punishing him more than her. As Dee Dee struggles to placate her father, she's confronted by the reality that she 'doesn't know how to be anybody else but her complicated, unrefined, unsinkable, adventure-seeking self. In the end, each drives the other to the same surprising discovery of what it is Bill really wants.


Co-Executive Producer, Writer, Director: The Trouble is Mike's first feature film coming on the heels of his award winning short, Diet. Mike started his career as an actor coming up through Chicago's Second City Training Center and performing at Improv Olympic with Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. After a detour through architecture school, Mike poured his new skills back into his first love, establishing Cinemetro Films to write, produce, direct and act in Diet, which won awards for cinematography and "best comedy short" on the festival circuit. Diet's success made it possible to land producer Bob Brown and raise the money to make Dee Dee Rutherford. Dee Dee Rutherford was filmed in and around Chicago where Mike lives with his wife and two sons.
