Martin Ryan is a Detroit newpaper columnist who writes about 'Scenes from Everyday Life.' Some of the subjects of his columns don't like what he writes, and one person has even gotten killed because of what Ryan wrote. Sarah is a stripper who agrees to be interviewed, but she doesn't like what Ryan writes. It doesn't matter, because they begin a romantic relationship, even though Ryan is married (if they showed Ryan's wife I don't remember; during the first half of the movie I couldn't figure out what was going on half the time). Doc is a former mobster who arranges to have a movie made based on the columns, and he, Ryan and Sarah go to Hollywood. There, Sarah meets an old friend, an Irish former stripper (Roma Downey), and we find out she has a past she didn't tell Ryan about. Ryan tries to Make sure Sarah's past won't be shown too negatively just to make the movie better, but Doc is in debt to some goons who have followed him, and he has to do what the producers want. I was looking forward to seeing more of Richard Dreyfuss, but that didn't happen. Also, when the time came to actually film the movie-within-a-movie, we met Cybill Shepherd, who played the actress who played Sarah. She was surely going to add more. And Jimmy Smits played the actor doing Ryan's part, but we never saw him except when he was playing Ryan. Just when it seemed there was a lot more to accomplish, the movie suddenly ended. Sarah liked painting, so the movie may appeal to those who like art that doesn't actually look like what it depicts. Fans of the music of Toni Childs (whoever that is) may also like the movie. There is some good stunt work in flashbacks, if you like seeing a man set on fire. Personally, I just didn't see that this movie reached its potential.
