Color me pleasantly surprised by this little independent movie about a group of friends searching for success in Hollywood, while desperately trying to avoid the price of selling out (or selling their souls) that so many other people have paid in order to achieve their dreams in the biz. 

The group (each interested in a different aspect of movie production, including writing, directing, editing, producing, acting, and behind the scenes work), hatch a hair-brained scheme to get a movie in production by using their positions as assistant to various powerful people to manipulate things in their favor. 

The movie ranges from light comedy to some fairly heavy stuff. People with inside knowledge of how Hollywood often works will probably appreciate this more than others. 

The Assistants also doesn't look that cheap, which automatically gives it an advantage over a lot of the bare-bones indies that are being made today. I liked it. It's no masterpiece, but it exceeded my expectations by being a pretty interesting small budget flick.
