Storyline

Avi Rosen knows what's really funny: the laughs come with dollar signs in Hollywood. Bidding farewell to his crotchety grandmother, who wishes he'd find a nice Jewish girl and open a pharmacy, Avi leaves the Big Apple and heads West to Tinseltown. Shacking up with an old comic buddy from the East Coast, Avi is surprised to find his once caustic friend an incense-sniffing yoga nut seemingly let loose in LALA land. But the changes Avi experiences end up being far more unsettling. Avi is quickly immersed in the gritty maneuvers of sitcom star making by Leo Stein, an unscrupulous but influential back room power player. Leo capitalizes on the young comedian's blinding desire for success and propels him past the aspiring entertainers Avi soon counts as friends, who have been paying their dues far longer than the recent transplant. When one of those overlooked comedians, Sarah Green, becomes his lover, he mistakes her warnings about his nefarious manager as professional jealousy. Nearly too ... Written by Paul Oscar Hamilton

A wonderful romantic comedy.
28 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has an excellent storyline that moves inexorably from one high to another until everything comes crashing down only to rise up and reach another high. There is no fluff just great drama and comedy. Modi Rosenfeld is perfect as the New York Jewish comic, Avi, trying to make it big in Hollywood. Kathryn Fiore is darling as his love interest and Derek Hughes as John, Avi's old New York Buddy is the perfect counterpoint to Avi and his acting is truly remarkable. Godfrey is superb as Avi's comic mentor and his wife, Tamara 'Ginger' Curry is beautiful and heart wrenching as the toiling mom behind the comic. John Melendez puts in a funny cameo as does Marlo Williams who is hysterically funny. This is a funny sweet film that will make you feel good.
