Poorly Written, Mo Gaffney is the Only Bright Spot
22 April 2001 | by (Rockville, MD) – See all my reviews



This movie is a badly-written tale of two struggling actors in Hollywood who can't seem to get a break. Most of the acting is really bad, with the exception of Mo Gaffney (Jamie and Paul's marriage counselor on Mad About You) who plays a hard-ass Hollywood executive. She shines in every scene she's in.

I actually bought this movie before I watched it because I am a die-hard Lee Tergesen (Tobias Beecher on Oz) fan. He only has two small scenes and four lines. It was worth it to me to get this movie but I certainly won't be watching very often.
