good lord! I thought my shoes stunk til i saw this stinkburger!
18 May 2004 | by (houston texas) – See all my reviews

OK, there is proof that there is a hell. There has got to be. Someone MUST be punished for making this pile of poo! The story is about a director who has been working in Hollywood all his life and is pretty useless. He hires an assistant who is actually intelligent and starts making progress for the director. Unfortuntly for the assistant, the house he works in is full of crazies! The director is the out of touch indian who is an amnesiac, blows his top over everything, and is used to paying his assistants $1.25 an hour to degrade them (very swimming with sharks). His wife is this high strunk housewife who freaks out over nothing. His son, judd, is the cream of the crop. He is a psychotic, obsessive-compulsive, wannabe actor. The scene where Judd comes in and does his "Acting" performance for the assistant is classic! He constantly lives in fear of the ceiling caving in on him, lives in constant pain from an oversize hemorrhoid, and does tasteless homosexual humor. The director does everything to try to belittle his assistant like talking over him, and in one scene, making him drive 2 hours away to deliver a script 10 minutes before the assistant is supposed to be off work, all the while not paying him gas, mileage, or overtime. When the assistant complains the director says "thats showbiz"! Another classic scene is when the director tries to cut $25 off the assistant pay because the assistant left the computer on the night before (because the idiot director had him type a 3 page letter one minute before the assistant had to leave and get to his afternoon job). All this after the director going 1 year owing his assistant $1800! The pay off is a real kicker though as the assistant moves out of state and doesn't tell the director except for an interesting little review he posted online.

thats showbiz!
