Loved the Film
13 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

We loved this movie. It maintained its heart while expressing the frustration with the realities of the creative process and creative people. In contrast with many films about the entertainment business it accomplishes all this without a hint of cynicism.

Michael Pressman was endearing playing himself -- trying against all odds to be a supportive husband. Lisa Chess, also playing herself, was wonderful --

especially in the scenes with Alan Rosenberg. Their acting exercises and "creative differences" were hysterical. Alan Rosenberg plays the "I'm as good as Pacino" role to the hilt, and Jillian Armenante was also very funny as the inept producer.
