What happens when a screenwriter (Brooks) loses his edge, he turns to anyone he can for help... even if it's the mythical "Zeus's Daughter" (Stone). And he's willing to pay, albeit reluctantly, whatever price it takes to satisfy this goddess, especially when her advice gets him going again on a sure-fire script. However, this is not the limit of her help, she also gets the writer's wife (MacDowell) going on her own bakery enterprise, much to the chagrin of Brooks, who has already had to make many personal sacrifices for his own help.Written by

Hollywood gets the enigmatic Albert Brooks-treatment
"The Muse" moves along at a pleasant pace as we follow Brooks' character, a screenwriter in desperate need of inspiration (he longs for an Oscar but ends up writing a Jim Carrey-vehicle!)
Brooks certainly has a way of displaying unique sensibility and "The Muse" has some memorable moments along the way, two of them including Martin Scorcese and James Cameron in hilarious cameos. To top it off Sharon Stone does a wonderful job as the title character.
If you enjoy the wonderful world of Albert Brooks, you're in for a treat.
