"Z-Lister, Z-Lister. Frustrated actor, he was an extra"
8 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, so Z-Lister is one of those romantic comedies that we've all seen before. Boy meets girl, obstacle gets into way and boy must prove his love for her. But there's such a dynamic quality to the storyline that makes me want to watch it more. Writing is very funny and somewhat heartfelt to the audience... at least I felt it! I felt that the acting was a little shoddy, like the performance from Jon Malkovich and the step- daughter character Alex could be improved but besides from that the acting worked. I am a Martin Ballantyne fan, I love his work and knew he would be great to watch ever since he did 'Logg Time' but this one just stands out so badly. In a magnificent way! Hats off to Ballantyne, cause his acting in Z-Lister will be the best thing he ever does! Usually whenever I watch an ending to a film and don't want it to end, that's a very good sign. Note to the crew: make a sequel!!!
