Storyline

Kevin Conroy works at the set of mega-budget picture called "Moby Dick 2: Ahab's Revenge". He is humiliated by tyrannical producer Michael Lawrence and his manager Russell. He also befriends his roommate Ted. When Kevin gets tired of it all, Ted conceives a plan - Kevin will steal the footage of the most expensive scene ever shot (Moby Dick attacks Honolulu) and demand $150,000 - the cost to film Kevin's art-house script.

Trivia

Original title for the film was "P.A. In L.A." but the director changed it because he felt not everyone would understand what a "P.A." (a Production Assistant) was and might pronounce the title "PAHH In LAHH." See more »

Can you get any funnier than this?
9 March 1999 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutly brilliant, great cast , also great storyline. Henry Thomas once again gives a great performance as a young college grad, who goes to Hollywood for a P.A. job, and hopes to make a script that he wrote into a movie. Will he be able to do it? Will he survive his P.A. job?

Other great performances are given by Scott Thompson, and Niel Mandt. 10/10
