Taylor Brandon Burns, a conflicted twelve-year-old TV star from the U.S., runs away from the set - and his problems - while shooting a big-budget film in Canada. His reluctant limo-driver, Rick Schiller, a down-on-his-luck indie filmmaker, is enlisted to find Taylor before the childstar destroys himself. Written by
When Rick is taking Taylor out on the town in Toronto to help him gain experience with women, initially they are driving northbound on Yonge Street, a few blocks north of Eglinton (as evidenced by the HMV location next to Toys 'R' Us; these two stores are part of the Yonge-Eglinton Centre). Shortly afterward, they are at a cafe called Il Gatto Nero, which is at College and Crawford, a few blocks east of Ossington - and several kilometres to the SOUTHwest of the Yonge and Eglinton area.

THis movie was comic genius, and is my favorite Canadian movie ever, Finally someone has made a film that manages to be thoughtful and funny at the same time. All of my friends loved it too, though some of them thought the ending was a bit incomplete. I disagree! It was fun, and touching, and never schlocky or stupid. And Don McKellar is hilarious! In fact, most of the actors were great, including the young boy (I forget his name) who plays the kid. I guess, as a Canadian, the film makes more sense. I hope Don Mckellar keeps making strange films like this and Last Night (his first one) because no one else is doing anything this interesting AND accessible, with the possible exception of Guy Maddin's last movie.
