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.

"Mistress", a misnomer, tells of a bunch of Hollywood hacks slogging through the process of networking, schmoozing, compromising, and sucking up required to launch a film project. A messy flick with little to offer considering the talent behind it, "Mistress" seems to be trying to make the point that making a film is often about everything but the film...careers, quid pro quos, personal agendas, etc. Unfortunately, "Mistress" is a poorly focused comedy/drama which doesn't work well in either genre. Most likely to be appreciated by people like the IMDB.com users who are not Hollywood insiders but have above average interest in films. (C)
