A petty thief posing as an actor is brought to Los Angeles for an unlikely audition and finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation along with his high school dream girl and a detective who's been training him for his upcoming role...Written by
The opening part, taking place at Harlan Dexter's mansion, was shot at Shane Black's mansion. In the years between Black's last produced feature, The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and this one, Black had become infamous for throwing similar large, extravagant parties at that mansion, filled with the same kind of industry big-wigs and up-and-comers.

Hey, Harmony, it's me.
Oh, God, how did you get away?
I shot him with a small revolver I keep near my balls.

Great movie with tons of funny scenes. I was rolling in my seat with laughter!
I saw a special screening of the movie yesterday and I thought it was going to be so boring, but I was entirely wrong! It was very funny and well written. It was a refreshing take on screenplays and acting and its great to see Robert Downey Jr. back again. Val Kilmer's role as Gay Perry was also spectacular. Michelle Monaghan looks like she can be Liv Tyler's little sister but with more substance (sorry Liv Tyler fans) I loved the sarcasm and humorous one-liners used throughout the movie. The constant reference to real life actors and movies gave it an almost "real life" feel. I recommend this movie for a good laugh and great narration by Downey, Jr.
