The tale of a young girl fresh off the bus from Iowa, who falls in love with a sexy and promising young actor, though their relationship threatens to complicate her own obsessive goal of becoming a famous actress. The film perfectly captures the delightful and desperate lives of those chasing dreams in Hollywood: One day they are shuffling down a boardwalk with too many suitcases, and the next they are lounging in contemporary hillside homes with a view of the city. Though neither state is permanent the more desirable one fuels the dream. The story's extraordinary execution portrays Hollywood as the fantastic and insane place that it is. Written by

A very bizarre experience. This is not a good film in it's own right. It doesn't seem to even attempt to try to do better than it can. It is just a weird, lazy excuse for a film. The "star" of the film is a shockingly unstable young woman, who dreams of being famous but is mentally limited, to say the least. She is evicted and is taken in by two producers, who promise her stardom and delude her into thinking she'll have it. But they are seduced by Hollywood, like her. Like everyone in the movie. Who also seem in on some smug joke that is not consistently amusing. Karen Black shines, but was better in children of the corn four. The star of the movie gives a hideous performance, on purpose. So credit to her. Actually, the whole movie is screamingly awful. And what is the meaning behind the rainbow shown at the start of the movie?
