No, this is not another Pearl Harbor epic, though it comes as almost as big a surprise. This is, in fact, the show that I hoped "Fat Actress" and "The Comeback" might be and deserves equal footing with "Entourage."

That she can even participate in such a dead-on send up of her industry in general and her self and her family in particular earns her great, noisy props!
