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.

When Kevin ('Henry Thomas') is "rehearsing" his Oscar acceptance speech in the end, he thanks Steven Spielberg, Milos Forman, 'Mick Jackson', and 'Michael McClary' - all directors Thomas had previously worked with. See more »
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.
