Very Funny
22 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a great satire of Hollywood. The fact that everyone in this film is working on "Moby Dick 2" is hilarious. All the lead actors are great in this, Henry Thomas who does very well as the nervous inexperience PA who also has a wonderful scene where he plays with an ET doll, you have to love when an actor is willing to poke fun at his past. Scott Thompson is ever irreverant as the off-the-wall producer. And Neil Mandt delivers some of the funniest lines in this film as Tad. This movie isn't only funny but it's also smart in it's plotting and it's scathing satire of the film industry.
