Storyline

Ralph Macchio, once a former teen idol, once on the top the world of the 80s. Now he is a family man with a loving wife and the nicest man in Hollywood....That is the problem. Because he never once participated in a scandal he is not as popular as he used to be. Sick and tired of it, his wife stages an intervention with his former co stars and manager. They explain to him that in order to further his career he has to shed the nice guy routine and become the most hated man in America. With some inspiration by other scandalous celebrities such as Colin Farrel and Christian Bale; Macchio decides to partake in every scandal known to modern America. Will he succeed in his career or would he go too far? Written by Shane

Well, if it were longer it would be tedious
1 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Effectively funny "trailer" for a movie that couldn't work. The concept is the reverse of the typical sad reality. Unfortunately, the concept played for humor here was occasionally tragic (River Phoenix). Ralph Macchio somehow avoided hitting bottom on the way to a comfortable middle age life -- probably because he was still doing the "teen roles" well into his twenties. If he *was* seriously looking for acting work, not having a scandal or two might indeed make him less known and therefore less "bankable." He seems to have settled for occasional roles, so maybe he will pull a Scott Baio and pop up on a Nickelodeon series.
