Storyline

Bill Williams is a down-and-out actor who is unexpectedly hired to write a sequel a la "True Lies," the action film that made him famous more than a decade ago. When Bill learns that his co-star is Aaron Roman, a rich kid with no acting experience, what appeared to be the chance for a major comeback turns into a series of outlandish complications. As the duo embark on a journey of outrageous misadventures, the unlikely pair discover that it takes more courage to face real life challenges than it does fighting bad guys on the big screen. Although Aaron may be inexperienced in acting, his tenacious spirit, unwavering optimism and unconditional friendship turns out to be an important, enduring gift to Bill. Written by Press Release (Wendy Morris PR)

Good, Heartfelt, Fun
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was REALLY starting to dislike Tom Arnold as an"ACTOR" and a person in general. But this movie made me think that ..just maybe he is not such a bad guy after all. It's fun, cute and sincere, and he took the inside jokes about himself without ever compromising the main character. The whole concept of the film was similar to the lets make a wish foundation where a dying kid gets to make his dream come true. but although this guy was not dying, you went on anyway and kept your own character from dying, because, obviously as "THE KID" shows you. Life; no matter how bad ; isn't really that bad after all. Kudos Tom, you showed you're a REAL person.
