Director George Huang was convinced to make this film by Robert Rodriguez. Huang used to work for Columbia Pictures, which acquired the distribution rights for Rodriguez' film El mariachi (1992) in 1991. The two met and Huang shared some of his would-be movie stories with Rodriguez, who - as documented in his memoir, "Rebel Without a Crew" - told Huang that he should simply "go out and make a movie." As such, Huang resigned from his position and set out to make this film. See more »
When Frank Whaley's character is speaking to Buddy Ackerman on the phone the night he has to collect all of the Time magazines he's talking to him about the "Real Life" movie. He's holding a BIC ballpoint pen in his hand. When he rights Foster Kane's name on the front of the script the sound effect is that of a Sharpie marker. In the close-up as he's writing it then shows a Sharpie, but when it goes back to a wide angle he's again holding a BIC pen while the Sharpie sound effect is being used. See more »

Kevin Spacey, perhaps the finest actor on the planet, is brilliant as usual in his hilarious turn as Buddy Ackerman, one of the nastiest characters that you'll ever see anywhere on film. Sure, the whole cast is great, but it is Spacey who really shines, and he is the reason that this film works so well. Watch this movie if you want to laugh your head off, or if you simply want to see a legend in the making at the top of his game, yet again.
