Storyline

This movie attempts a persiflage on the Hollywood film industry, depicting two young authors, struggling on their way to their first successful screenplay: Right from the beginning - when they meet by means of a car accident - Davis and Zina's relationship is one of love and hate. This doesn't get better when they keep on getting in each other's way while competing as writers for the same production. It gets even more twisted when the producer makes Zina suggestive offers and it turns out that Zina's manager Alice is Davis' former girlfriend...

Romance tries to survive the Hollywood scene
24 October 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Davis (Jonathan Silverman) is an aspiring writer with a movie he scripted about to open nationwide. In the meantime, he's rubbing elbows with Hollywood's influential people at an endless stream of parties. At an important get-together, Davis is introduced to a movie executive looking for a screenwriter. Unfortunately, a rival writer, Zina (Madchen Amick) has also made the acquaintance of the executive and Zina just might have the inside track. From the start, Davis and Zina dislike each other (well, she DID crash his car) but at subsequent encounters, they begin to fall for each other. Can true love survive Hollywood, especially the cutthroat competition for movie opportunities that young writers endure?

This little, off-the-beaten-path movie has its own set of charms. The two leads are adorable and give humorous, touching performances. The depiction of the who-do-you-know Hollywood scene is painfully realized. Molly Hagan, in a supporting role, especially epitomizes the hungry, hurtful wannabe of the movie industry. Anyone with a yen to make it in the film business would be wise to watch this film. But for those who merely seek an entertaining couple of hours, this little-known romantic comedy will satisfy nicely.
