Worse, Nick is lost, too, turning on girlfriend Susan and old buddy Emmet. Will he come to his sense before everything is lost? Written by
During the student awards dinner, after the Crossed Sabres of Truth is shown, Dan Schneider's line "...regrettably killed while filming" could be a reference to Vic Morrow, who was Jennifer Jason Leigh's father. She plays Lydia in the film. Even if not intended to be about him, it was how she lost her father. See more »

I'm very, very aware... that you are seeing other agents. And I think it's good that you are. Finally, I mean it's healthy. But, this is the thing. If you decide to sign with me, you're gonna get more than an agent. You're gonna get three people.
[Holds up four fingers]
You're gonna get an agent, a mother, a father, a shoulder to cry on, someone who knows this business inside and out. And if anyone ever tries to cross you, I'll grab them by the balls and squeeze 'til they're dead.

If you have ever worked in Hollywood (alright Burbank)then this movie captures the insanity that sometimes leads to great movies or watered down movies or even movies that never should have been made - which, unfortunately, are most of the movies made.
It is all there, the Agent who promises everything and delivers nothing, the Producer who just can't leave a movie alone, the forgetting of friendships in order to rise higher on the ladder of stars and the endless number of meetings and promises (broken and kept)that lead to only further frustrations.
The Cast is right on the target, the writing is superb and the actors deliver.
Before you go to Film School, before you move to Hollywood, before you sign that first deal - see this movie so that the tears that you will shed over Hollywood will at least be lighter.
Emily Longstreth is simply lovely as Susan, Nick's girlfriend
