Trouble is, he's not much with a typewriter; so, when his cousin calls and says a producer likes the idea and wants a script, Alex swallows his homophobia and asks for help from Elliot Springer, a talented writer who's an insecure, gay, Jewish nebbish.

Hit and Runway was a formulaic film school comedy. Pitting two opposited working for a common goal. What can go wrong?
But Hit and Runway works because although filled with stereotypical characters, (The self-loathing, nebbish gay middle-aged jew and the macho, slightly homophobic, sexist young itallian.) the two actors try to get past these stereotypes by giving honest performances rather than playing the stereotypes.
I had fun watching this film. It was cleverly funny at times and the writing was great although as aforementioned sometimes it had to rely on the stereotypes of its main characters to further the plot.
