According to the Angelfire website, this film examines the deeper thematic question: "The issue is, how far should film-makers go, in disregarding historical truth, in order to obtain audience approval? Films are, of necessity, separate and distinct from their source material, but in the trade-off between authenticity and popularity, where is the balance to be struck?" See more »

Sure! Some poisoned food would just finish me off!

I like this very silly movie about the making of a movie set during the Revolutionary War. History takes a back seat to the backstage madness as film crew invades a small town in the American South... ...except that this film was filmed on Long Island. Living on the Island I get great joy watching all the technical gaffes in the film, only the lead characters cars have non-New York license plates, a Long Island Railway Train goes by in the background and on it goes. You don't have to have sharp eyes to see the errors, they are glaring if you know that they are there. They don't take away from the fun, they add to it since as Alan Alda's character quickly finds out, there is nothing real about making movies.
The cast is great across the board, with everyone seeming to have such a good time its infectious.
See this movie, its just a lot of fun.
