Affectionate tribute to Bruce Vilanch (1948- ), who writes material for celebrities who make public appearances, from Oscar hosts and award recipients to Presidents. We meet his mom and see photos of his childhood; in Chicago, he writes for the Tribune and then heads West. Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, and Bette Midler talk with him and to the camera about working with Bruce, and we also watch Bruce help others prepare for Liz Taylor's 60th, Bill Clinton's 50th, and an AIDS awards banquet where the hirsute, rotund Vilanch lets his emotions show.

If it's done right, you're right on the edge. You're working without a net. And to do that, you have to have people around you who you trust. That's why Bette goes to Bruce, and that's why Lily and Whoopi. They will all go to Bruce Vilanch. They all say. "Get Vilanch".

Anyone should be so lucky to have such a delightful biography made about himself. I wish they had had more about the writing process he goes through, but since the film skims over every aspect of his life, fair enough. I also wish they had interviewed a few more people, like Sigourney Weaver.
