Robert De Niro,
A comedy about a screenwriter (Robert Wuhl), whose old movie script is read by a producer (Martin Landau) and the search for financial backers begins. But it seems that each money source (Danny Aiello, Robert De Niro, and Eli Wallach) has his own mistress that he wants put into the film. Gradually, the screenwriter is forced to make changes to his script to accommodate these backers, until he finally sees no semblance of his original ideas in the writing.Written by

I could have made this film years ago if I wanted to play footsie-wootsie with it but I don't!
Marvin, we're just talking here.
I knew this was gonna happen. I'm not changing *one* word! I don't *need* to make this film and I don't need your damn turkey sandwich okay? Just... let's just forget it okay?
Jesus I love your passion. It's so refreshing.

This is one of those movies that I fervently hope gets rediscovered one day. The performances are top notch, especially Landau as the extremely obseqious producer and Ralph as DeNiro's actress girlfriend. What makes this movie so great is that it understands the need of subtlety in satire, something that is often lacking. This film also says a lot about Hollywood and financing that REALLY hits the mark, maybe a little to close to home for some in the industry.
