Having left New Hampshire over excessive demands by the locals, the cast and crew of "The Old Mill" moves their movie shoot to a small town in Vermont. However, they soon discover that The Old Mill burned down in 1960, the star can't keep his pants zipped, the starlet won't take her top off, and the locals aren't quite as easily conned as they appear.

Thrown out of their New Hampshire shooting location (for undisclosed misdeeds), a Hollywood film crew lands in a small Vermont town to finish their movie. Their funding rapidly diminishing, the harried producer, William H. Macy in an excellent performance, struggles to keep the crew together and the movie on track. David Mamet has populated his screenplay with an interesting mix of characters. Mostly they're a vain, greedy lot, either slaves to their passions or to money. But Mr. Mamet gives them plenty to say, and mischief to get into and out of, and all in all, it's a very entertaining, black comedy.
