Storyline

A film director (Adam Rifkin) decides to chart the course of a young actor (Tony Markes) as he tries to make it in Hollywood. Attempts to get him noticed and placed in roles meet with failure. A guest role on "Baywatch" ends when he steps on a stingray and has to be hospitalized. The filmmaker's frustration is multiplied by the fact that the original actor (David Andriole) he had selected and who had to drop out of the project because of a studio commitment, meets success and constantly crops up in roles where the second actor is struggling for his break. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Brilliant filmmaking, an absolute great rental
9 November 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A fantastic satire in the vein of Spinal Tap, only more clever. A wonderful supporting cast, great locations and an air of spontaneity all add to the wonderful acting jobs turned in by Tony Markes, and in his own Woody Allen-esque way, Adam Rifkin. This film is a "10".
