Quotes

Lori Seefer: So what's Hell like? Is it hot with burning fires?
Ted Gavin: No, it's a lot like Hollywood only with more agents.
Lori Seefer: Eww!
Ted Gavin: I'm kidding! It's like I'm in this weird limbo state where I'm forced to watch my sad pathetic life over and over again. It's like a made-for-TV-movie, but with narration.

Something lost in translation
30 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

5 actresses with 5 big secrets who are so determined to keep them in the closet that they lie, cheat, steal, deceive, betray and are even capable of murder. It is a cutthroat business and the plot is full of delicious promise. But---

Alas, not nearly so WICKEDLY funny or as shamelessly sassy and satirical as the book. Based on one of the most delightfully naughty books ever written about Hollywood, something was definitely lost in the screen translation which retained the great premise but somehow lost its way.

Cast does a worthy effort with what was given to them, but the script is awkward at times and lacks the spirit of mischievousness that was so endearing in the novel. Too bad, what a true gem this would have been if it had been truly faithful to the spirit of the book BUT the danger of lawsuits might have been too hot to handle!
