James Le Gros,
An electronic ankle bracelet and being under house arrest aren't about to stop up-and-coming actress Maggie Chase (Tanna Frederick) from the two things she craves the most: real fame and true love. With more "Google points" than her Iowa hometown, but far less than Angelina Jolie, Maggie is desperate to claw her way off the B-list of action/adventure pictures and into major movie stardom. With a team of handlers (Ron Vignone, Diane Salinger, David Proval and Zack Norman) to spin her recent drunk driving arrests into tabloid gold and bad-boy movie star boyfriend Dov Lambert (Christopher Rydell) on her arm, Maggie's star is on the rise. Things get complicated when a trip home to meet Dov's legendary family introduces Maggie to the world of Hollywood Royalty (Kathryn Crosby, Mary Crosby, Peter Bogdanovich, Dennis Christopher and Jack Heller) and to her boyfriend's brother Aaron Lambert (Noah Wyle), the black sheep of the family, a failed writer who can actually see who Maggie really is ...

A totally original plot with many connections to previous Jaglom movies, a great group of talented actors, beautiful cinematography and music. And yet... a painful movie to watch. Why? This could have been a great movie on the unique style of Henry Jaglom were it not to be for the unbelievable stubbornness of Mr.Jaglom to cast Ms Frederick as the main lead. Unfortunately she destroys any hope of success by her mediocre acting, her continuous nagging and her consistent ability not to be endearing at all. I am all for artistic freedom and yet, there are factors that have to be considered for the success of a film. Please, please, someone has to get Mr. Jaglom to come back to his senses and get a good casting director.
