Storyline

Matt Hobbs is a talented but unsuccessful actor. When estranged (and strange) ex-wife Beth dumps their daughter Jeannie on Matt, father and daughter have a lot of adjusting to do. His budding relationship with attractive production assistant Cathy Breslow is made complicated, while the precocious child is overly accustomed to getting her own way. Matt eventually faces the choice of family versus career in a particularly difficult way. Written by Reid Gagle

Trivia

In the beginning of the movie, we see a reference to Powers Boothe showing up at the Emmy Awards ceremony to collect the award he had won for playing Jim Jones in the middle of a Screen Actors Guild strike. Although Nick Nolte was not nominated for an Emmy that year, everything else shown about the incident really happened in September, 1980. See more »

Irony Incarnate
3 December 2004 | by knightm7See all my reviews

This is a movie about making movies and standing up for your beliefs and not having to bow down under the pressures of audience expectations and studio involvements, and it had musical numbers which were cut and writers come in to dumb it down because of audience expectations and studio involvements.

But I found all that out after I first saw the movie and thought it was great entertainment. I love Nick Nolte, he's so grave and gruff and depressed that I hope he doesn't kill himself cause I really like everything he's done, even The Hulk, and especially Affliction and that Martin Short with a kid movie. Joely Richardson is gorgeous! Julie Kavner and James Brooks are great. I highly recommend this film, and hope to see it again soon on DVD with all of the deleted scenes.
