A parody, based on personal experience?
13 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film immensely. Firstly I really like Scott Bakula, and it was interesting that he was cast in the lead rather than Tony Alda. maybe Alda decided that casting himself in the lead would be far too confusing.... an under achieving actor, playing a failed actor pretending to be a green actor playing himself?!??!???!?

I though the storyline was clever and the casting of the ex-wife and the woman playing her in the movie about Alda's (oops, I mean Scott Bakula's, no the character's) life was inspired, given the visual similarity.

More please Mr Alda!!
