And this guy you've got a date with on Bastille Day, is he part of the growth process?
Oh no, he's just a friend, a struggling young actor.

A delightful dig at Hollywood without the claws. Very funny, undemanding entertainment at its best. I suppose that today such films would be called spoofs (might be a UK term?), but this has humour , innuendo and clever references to the actors themselves and the films they have been in. One to watch again and again to catch them all.
