Henry ("E.T.") Thomas playing naive and innocent in L.A. is nearly lost admit a number of terrific supporting cast members, but the actor who gave director Neil Mandt the best performance was...Neil Mandt.
Thomas, who wants to be a director (who doesn't?), gets a job as a production assistant on a distant relative's big-budget picture. While ambling around the landscape of the City of the Angels, he and his roommate (Mandt) hatch a plot to get their movie made which is blatantly ripped from "The Producers" - in a just world, the credits would have included "From a story by Mel Brooks."
Light fun, deftly played - see it before the musical version becomes the toast of Broadway!
