another (1) hollywood-based satire that lamely missed the mark
17 September 1999 | by (nyc, ny) – See all my reviews

Once again it is "revenge of the PAs" on a tired movie about movie makers and getting the movie deal. yawn.. I suspect the filmmakers thought this would be revenge on all the producers that mistreated them so. However, in the face of this drivel they should be banned from any set.
