When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
When Jack goes up and writes something on the board for Dr. Primkin at the end of the film, he underlines it. In the next shot it is not underlined. See more »
It's like hidden gold under a 20 ft. pile of horseshit! Nobody wants to dig through it, but guess what? It's in there. The truth, waiting patiently under all the horseshit that is the buildup of our silly little lives! So, go in and get it, people. Dig for the truth!

This movie was advertised as a romantic comedy, but there was no romance and no comedy. All I saw was a boring story about a horrible person, a talent agent, whom I found myself rooting against. Talent agents are, in general, not likable characters. So why did the director think we'd enjoy spending a few hours with one, even if he's played by Ben Affleck? The nepotism and shallow nature of Hollywood seem to be accurately portrayed in this movie. Behind the red carpet glamour of the movie industry lies a dirty business totally lacking any morals or ethical standard. But this was well documented in "The Player" and doesn't need to be repeated. I couldn't bring myself to care about Affleck's character, and thus didn't get emotionally involved with this movie.
