Storyline

David Egoman, a mega-successful Hollywood director, is screening a work-print of his latest film for the studio brass at his home. Little does he realize two desperate, jealous actors, Dem Reel and Patrick St. Patrick, plan to break into his home and steal the film, then toss it onto a scrap heap where they can gleefully watch it being destroyed. The actors get more than they bargained for when Egoman is brutally assaulted during the melee and later falls into a coma. This increases the value of the missing film can, which contain the only copy of the celebrated director's latest-and possibly last-film, and results in an all-out search for their whereabouts.

Poorly Written, Mo Gaffney is the Only Bright Spot
22 April 2001 | by amytychxSee all my reviews

This movie is a badly-written tale of two struggling actors in Hollywood who can't seem to get a break. Most of the acting is really bad, with the exception of Mo Gaffney (Jamie and Paul's marriage counselor on Mad About You) who plays a hard-ass Hollywood executive. She shines in every scene she's in.

I actually bought this movie before I watched it because I am a die-hard Lee Tergesen (Tobias Beecher on Oz) fan. He only has two small scenes and four lines. It was worth it to me to get this movie but I certainly won't be watching very often.
