funny and fun!
24 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Loved it!!Saw a screening in NY. Great cast, great acting, directing! I would recommend it to anyone interested in Hollywood/fame. If you like Entourage, you got to see this one. The Player meets Big Picture...Love Sally Kirkland and Daphne Zuniga is awesome. Damon Shalit looks like he is going to be around for a while after this picture. Anyone know anything about him? Eddie Albert is one of the best actors out there and Renee Taylor has this scene that almost steals the movie! Also Joanna Garcia is so cute! She is the girl on the Reba show. Well directed also, all the acting was very good, testament to the director Shira-Lee Shalit. Great soundtrack!
