Michael has written a scholarly book on the revolutionary war. He has sold the film rights. The arrival of the film crew seriously disrupts him as actors want to change their characters, directors want to re-stage battles, and he becomes very infatuated with Faith who will play the female lead in the movie. At the same time, he is fighting with his crazy mother who thinks the Devil lives in her kitchen, and his girlfriend who is talking about commitment. Written by

Michael, played by Alan Alda, writes a History of the American Revolution, sells it to a producer, and films it. Alan Aldo wrote the script and produced it. The whole story is screwed up by Hollywood, and altho the oneliners are funny, there is so much confusion, and dissension; too many people involved. If it wasn't for the fine actors Michael Caine, Michele Pfeiffer, and that grand lady of old films Lillian Gish, it wouldn't amount to much. 6/10
