A petty thief posing as an actor is brought to Los Angeles for an unlikely audition and finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation along with his high school dream girl and a detective who's been training him for his upcoming role... Written by
Harry's hotel room number is 714. This number is also Joe Friday's badge number on the L.A. television cop show, Dragnet (1951). See more »
When Harry answers Perry's mobile phone towards the end, the screen of the phone is clearly visible. Instead of showing "Harmony Calling" which would be correct, the phone display simply shows the phone book entry for Harmony instead. See more »
She had something, that gal tonight, this quality. You know, like the girl from high school, the one that got away that - you know what I mean? - that haunts you still.
Yeah, I had that.
Eugh. Hunh. Well, maybe you should try to get in touch with him. I got 5 bucks says you could still get him.
Really? That's funny. I got a 10 says pass the pepper. I got two quarters sing harmony on "Moonlight in Vermont".
A talking monkey?
A talking monkey, yeah, yeah...

At the end of the movie, Val Kilmer says not to leave; to stay and watch the credits; and if you're wondering who the Best Boy is, he's someone's nephew. (The actual Best Boy credit is Jack Bauer.) See more »

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.
