A television network is making a pilot of Mike's quirky comedy based on the aftermath of his brother's suicide. As the network suits ask for change after change, and as Mike struggles with compromise, there are strains on families, execs who show rushes to their children, leads who feel each other out, and assistants who put a smile on everything. Can an honest show get made in the world of reality TV chasing an audience of teen-aged boys? Written by
Sigourney Weaver's character was written as a man. It wasn't until late in pre-production that it was decided that the role of could actually be a woman instead. Still, no line was re-written for the gender change. Even the name Lenny was kept. See more »
If I don't worry about the content in my show, then I'm part of the problem. I'm making the world more mediocre!
I think that you're overstating the situation just a little bit.
But you've never seen "Taxi Driver"!
I am going to rent "The Taxi Driver", okay?

A smart, funny film about the process of getting a TV Pilot from the paper to the screen
David's character Mike Kline was so far removed from Fox Mulder that this should finally shut the critics up that say David can only play one role. David was almost unrecognizable as this down trodden man who had his dream script completely turned inside out by the powers that be. He, in MHO was terrific as was the whole ensemble cast. Justine Bateman was very good as his wife and Sigourney was terrific as the network boss. The expressions on David's face were just amazing. He truly made you feel sorry for the man while you also had to laugh at his pain. I LOVED the film. And I can say for the first time that David was really skuzzy looking. Duchovny's expressions were priceless. This film has a truly wonderful ensemble cast. There is not a bad performance in the bunch. Bottom line . I think that this film is very smart, funny and kind of sad. You feel Mike's pain
I'd give this film 4 stars any day of the week
