Les, a small-time celebrity photographer desperate to make it big, befriends Toby, a homeless young man with no direction except a vague desire to become an actor. When by chance Toby becomes romantically involved with K'Harma Leeds, the hottest pop star of the moment, Les grows jealous and plots revenge. Written by
Toby Grace (Michael Pitt) is a homeless actor wannabe. Les Galantine (Steve Buscemi) is a paparazzi. While Les is waiting for pop diva K'harma Leeds (Allison Lohman), Toby helps K'harma get away. Later, Toby becomes Les' assistant and even friend. However when K'harma pretends that Toby is her hook-up, Les is blocked from backstage and is angered. Toby befriends K'harma and is invited to her birthday party. He brings Les along as a favor. At the party, Les starts taking pictures and they're both thrown out. Toby and Les breakup. Eventually Toby becomes famous and a jealous Les vows to kill him.
Steve Buscemi is too angry, too pathetic, and too annoying to watch. It's a silly Hollywood stereotype of the loner creepy paparazzi loser. Michael Pitt doesn't show the necessary star presence. He needs to be more than a pretty boy. Alison Lohman is even less believable as a pop star. It doesn't help that her songs sound so bad. It could have been interesting to have a dark ending but the movie force a happy ending anyways. Tom DiCillo delivers little more than a passable B-movie.
