A comedy about a screenwriter (Wuhl) whose old movie script is read by a producer (Landau) and the search for financial backers begins. But it seems that each money source (Aiello, DeNiro, Wallach) has his own mistress that he wants put into the film. Gradually, the screenwriter is forced to make changes to his script to accommodate these backers until he finally sees no semblance of his original ideas in the writing. Written by

I could have made this film years ago if I wanted to play footsie-wootsie with it but I don't!
Marvin, we're just talking here.
I knew this was gonna happen. I'm not changing *one* word! I don't *need* to make this film and I don't need your damn turkey sandwich okay? Just... let's just forget it okay?
Jesus I love your passion. It's so refreshing.
