Storyline

In this follow up to 'Hollywood Dreams' and 'Queen of the Lot', cheerful and neurotic actress Maggie Chase has cut some of her losses and focuses her acting career at local theater in West Hollywood. Still employed by her acting entourage of Gio, Kaz Naiman, Hildi, as well as the Lambert family, Maggie has reduced some of her neurosis and seems to find peace until she has a meeting of minds when she meets Stewart Henry, a slick and hotshot TV star who is seeking his own career choices by making the transition from TV and film to live theater. Written by Larry B.

Donate to charity instead, please.
8 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

James Denton, as great as he is, cannot save this Titanic ship of fools from sinking.

Meandering mush of a story, complemented by awful roles played by Jaglom's children. Lowlighted by a car crash of a performance by Tanna Frederick. She is the painful-to-watch center of this implosion.

Bad acting other than Denton. Bad plot that wandered like a hobo. Bad lighting from a DP who went to an online film school. Bad use of your time. Seriously, you could watch Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger and that would be a better use of your time. Donate to charity instead, please. Think of how much better your rental dollars will be used.
