Taylor Brandon Burns, a conflicted twelve-year-old TV star from the U.S., runs away from the set - and his problems - while shooting a big-budget film in Canada. His reluctant limo-driver, Rick Schiller, a down-on-his-luck indie filmmaker, is enlisted to find Taylor before the childstar destroys himself.Written by
When Rick is taking Taylor out on the town in Toronto to help him gain experience with women, initially they are driving northbound on Yonge Street, a few blocks north of Eglinton (as evidenced by the HMV location next to Toys 'R' Us; these two stores are part of the Yonge-Eglinton Centre). Shortly afterward, they are at a cafe called Il Gatto Nero, which is at College and Crawford, a few blocks east of Ossington - and several kilometres to the SOUTHwest of the Yonge and Eglinton area.

I loved McKeller's other film "Last Night". Unfortunately, this lame effort is uninspired. We've seen it all before and better. The film doesn't know what it wants to be - is it a comedy, a morality play about fame and the young, is it about parents living through their children, is it about manipulation? The result is a film that doesn't know what it wants to be and in turn, cannot find an audience. Like so many Canadian films, it's just not audience friendly and there is nothing in this film to get anyone but McKeller fans out to watch it. The film just unraveled (badly) and never went anywhere and then needed a long speech at the end to explain a plot we all stop caring about a long way back. The cinematography was excellent but it was wasted in this effort. McKeller can do better and has. Hopefully he can put this failure behind him.
