The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the 60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night... Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, Agatha, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome who is also an aspiring actor.

What trash...
26 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched this absolutely horrible movie called "Maps to the Stars" because some of the cast members were actors I enjoy seeing perform. Sadly, they were ALL wasted in this send-it-to-the-round file film about a totally dysfunctional family in Hollywood. The dad is a self-help charlatan on TV, the wife is a mental-wreck of a woman, the son is a teen-sensation brat who is haunted by visions of a dead fan he met briefly in a hospital, and the daughter has just been released from a mental institution for setting her home one fire. Added to the mix is a washed up actress who uses the dad's services as a "psychiatrist". All of the characters are ghastly people, and the language is over-the-top vulgar... when by the end of the film the majority of them end up on the wrong end of the stick, you really don't care. I suppose it might have been "amusing" to people in the TV and movie industries, but to the rest of us they're all a bunch of unsympathetic users and losers who don't deserve the fame and fortune they squander on a daily basis. What trash. Hideous. F-
