When the camera zooms in on the newspaper article detailing the story about the film crew coming to the small town of Embry, Indiana to film a movie, the website www.embrystar.com is clearly visible under the name of the newspaper - the article was supposedly written and published in 1982, eight years before the first website existed.

Great movie with tons of funny scenes. I was rolling in my seat with laughter!
I saw a special screening of the movie yesterday and I thought it was going to be so boring, but I was entirely wrong! It was very funny and well written. It was a refreshing take on screenplays and acting and its great to see Robert Downey Jr. back again. Val Kilmer's role as Gay Perry was also spectacular. Michelle Monaghan looks like she can be Liv Tyler's little sister but with more substance (sorry Liv Tyler fans) I loved the sarcasm and humorous one-liners used throughout the movie. The constant reference to real life actors and movies gave it an almost "real life" feel. I recommend this movie for a good laugh and great narration by Downey, Jr.
