Hollywood producer Alexander Meyerheimer has hired drunken writer Richard Benson to write his latest movie. Benson has been holed up in a Paris apartment supposedly working on the script for months, but instead has spent the time living it up. Benson now has just two days to the deadline and thus hires a temporary secretary, Gabrielle Simpson, to help him complete it in time.Written by

This self-conscious tale about a screenwriter and his assistant might be a little skinny on plot, but it's wink-included self-consciousness feels surprisingly modern. As it stands, "Paris When it Sizzles" is an unrecognized godfather to movies like "Spaceballs" (think "dissolves") and "The Naked Gun," where everyone seems in on the fact that a movie is on screen, and not reality.
