Storyline

A boy from the Midwest comes to Hollywood in search of a dream: he wants to be a star. He finds acting teacher Aaron Gillespie who bills himself as "The Buddah of Buddahs" of acting teachers and gets entangled, together with a group of acting students, into the biggest scam in Hollywood: Acting Schools that promise anything to you want to hear. "I will put an Oscar in your hands" are the words of Acting "Guru" Aaron Gillespie: and the story begins.... "Spinal Tap" meets "Fame" is the best way to describe this film. Written by Anonymous
