Gary Busey shows the film during his film Get Out of My Dreams and Also Out of My Car: A Guide to Your Restraining Order. After the film, Gary Busey said that Joe was based on him and that Mary was based on a mixture of 12 women and a film company who couldn't deal with him because he was too real.
One night Joe Spaghettio fell in love with a girl named Mary at a party, however Mary doesn't like him. He then stalked her, doing lots of romantic things which Mary didn't like, even hiding in the coffin at a funeral for a family member. She eventually took out a restraining order against Joe. Joe is then clubbed over the head with a police baton. Joe will no longer come within 500 feet of Mary, and he also can't call her or burn his name in gas on her lawn.
