A down-on-his-luck movie agent (Billy Crystal) goes to a movie site in Romania to be with his only client, his former paperboy. But once he gets there, the kid tells him he is getting a big time agent and that he is fired. Despondent, the agent roams the countryside until he loses control of his car and overturns into a pond where he seemingly is going to drown until a pair of gigantic hands pulls him free of the car. Later he awakens in a monastery and discovers that a 7-1/2' man (NBA player Gheorge Muresan) rescued him. Money dances in front of the agent as he figures ways to get him back to America and into the movies. The giant is only interested in getting to Gallup to see his childhood girl friend. First the agent gets him a small role in the Romanian-filmed movie which earns his plane fare. Then he takes him to Las Vegas where he convinces Steven Seagal (in a cameo as himself) to include the giant in a new action film. Written by John Sacksteder <>

Not good...
8 March 2013 | by (Monaco) – See all my reviews

This movie is supposed to be a comedy, but it isn't funny. When a comedy isn't funny, we know we have a problem. I'm not sure Crystal new exactly what he wanted to do with this movie, whether to tell the story of a failed agent of movie stars (played by himself), criticize the system governing show business, or...

In any case, he starts on a couple of these endeavors in this movie, but only barely starts... There is nothing of consequence, the movie just seems to senselessly go from one scene to the next, until it finally reaches the (expected) ending. Nothing tragically bad about this film, but nothing good either.
