A great documentary. Might save a lot of dreamers a trip to Hollywood.
13 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It also might inspire the other lot of them. An honest, almost shameless look at the pursuit of an acting career in Hollywood. Compelling and very entertaining. Why this film has not been distributed theatrically or on video, in light of America's fascination with reality programming, is mind boggling. Wes Bentley goes on to co-star in an Academy Award winning film. What more could the filmmakers have done?
