When Max's performance is no competition for producers' nephews and bigger "names," his only option is to cripple the competition - literally. But as the roles get bigger, the competition gets stronger, the stakes get higher, and now with an undercover thespian cop on his trail, Max must struggle with his ongoing road to success and the choices he's made.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film...
9 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After seeing 'Break a Leg' in Vancouver at the release party I thought it was a very enjoyable film.

I had a few outright belly laughs and some of the cameos (Eric Roberts in particular) were a scream. I haven't heard word about actual release date although I've heard it's close.

The story is simple but is mainly a vehicle for the characters and situations. The script is smooth and seamless, the plot develops effortlessly and the acting is comfortable yet fresh. This film has won at least one award from EACH of the film festivals it's been in, which is around 10 - 15 or so.

I highly recommend 'Break a Leg'.
