What happens when a screenwriter (Brooks) loses his edge, he turns to anyone he can for help... even if it's the mythical "Zeus's Daughter" (Stone). And he's willing to pay, albeit reluctantly, whatever price it takes to satisfy this goddess, especially when her advice gets him going again on a sure-fire script. However, this is not the limit of her help, she also gets the writer's wife (MacDowell) going on her own bakery enterprise, much to the chagrin of Brooks, who has already had to make many personal sacrifices for his own help.

I want to do a remake of "Raging Bull" with a really thin guy. Not just thin, but REALLY thin. Thin and angry, thin and angry, thin and angry. Can you see it? Can you see it?
Is there a Starbucks near here?
I'd be careful. I think you had your quota.
Quota! That gives me an idea for something else entirely. I don't know you, we never had this conversation, we never met.

Increasingly there are two kinds of movies: 1. Movies that you see and really enjoy because they offer something new to you and 2. Movies that are hyped so much and reveal so much of the movie in trailers and talk show clips that seeing them is a waste of time.
Muse is very definitely in category 2!! I had seen every really funny line and surprise cameo before I ever even walked in the theater. Unless you missed all the trailers and hype, save your money. On second thought, save your money for video. The big screen doesn't do a thing to save this dull, flat effort.
Of course, McDowell and Stone are pleasant on the eyes but their considerable talents are wasted here!
