Storyline

FBI director Jack Devine always sets up his brother Joe as undercover to trick mobsters. His latest cover is as movie producer Joe Diamond, to get Tommy Sanz for Teamster racketeering. His cover requires a script - the one movie theater manager Steven Schats and his brother Marshall 'Paris' wrote, supposedly a cancer biopic. So Steven is hired as director, his greatest dream, even if producing an Arizona desert drama on Rhode Island is far from ideal. When a former Oscar nominee volunteers to star, the cover gets out of hand till everyone believes in it, even the FBI brass- or not? Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Emily French: After my nomination, I just... freaked out. Turned everything down that they sent. Then I had a late-term abortion, went into deep depression, got really into coke, moved to Florida for a year and made a bunch of B-movies for my Eurotrash boyfriend, who wrote and directed and made sure I got my tits out in every other scene. The truth is, I was blackballed in Hollywood, because the great Jed Walker claimed that the baby was his, that I had murdered his baby in the fifth month, which, if you had...

A movie that was never made

This is based on a true story.In that story Alec Baldwin plays FBI agent Joe Devine who uses movie director-screenwriter Steven Schats (Matthew Broderick) to nail the mob.He claims to be a movie producer and promises to make a movie of Steven's script Arizona.Jeff Nathanson's The Last Shot from 2004 is some great stuff.It's funny with some pretty dark comedy.The cast is awesome.Broderick and Baldwin make a great couple.Other stars in the movie include Toni Collette, Tony Shalhoub, Calista Flockhart, Buck Henry, Ray Liotta, Joan Cusack and so on.Also the late great Pat Morita makes a visit in the movie.This is a fantastic movie about the movie factory called Hollywood and how things are done there.Steven Schats has a dream and so do many others who go there.Some of them get to fulfill their dreams, some of them just have to hang in there.
