Storyline

Lee Simon, unsuccessful journalist and wanna-be novelist, tries to get a foot into the door with celebrities. After divorcing his wife Robin, Lee gets to meet a lot folks of the rich and / or beautiful, partly through journalism, partly because he has a script to offer. But life among those from out-of-this-world is hard, and his putative success always results in defeat. Meanwhile Robin meets a very desirable TV-producer and takes the first steps in the world of celebrities herself. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

I could not stand Kenneth Branagh as Woody Allen
12 May 2001 | by (Arden Hills, MN USA) – See all my reviews

This movie centers on Kenneth Branagh who portrays the speaking style, mannerisms, and neurotic attitude of 1970's Woody Allen. I could not believe Kenneth Branagh in this role. All I could see was an actor pretending to be Woody Allen. I could find nothing funny in this movie. I gave up on this movie when I got to the scene where Kenneth Branagh is giving a woman a ride in his car and she says she has mirrors on her bed and Branagh gets so flustered at that thought that he makes a left turn into a picture window and crashes the car. I think it was supposed to be funny, but the reaction was just illogical.
