Trivia

The SEC filed a civil complaint on 2/26/19, accusing writer-director Daniel Adams and music producer Michael Flanders of defrauding at least two investors out of tens of thousands of dollars and doling out improper loans. The case is SEC v. Adams et al., Case No. 2:19-cv-0412, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The case against Adams was dismissed in late 2019. See more »

User Reviews

 
Underdeveloped and Unfunny Comedy about the Trappings of Fame
28 August 2018 | by IboChildSee all my reviews

The talents of Gabriel Byrne and Kiersey Clemons can't save this underbaked comedy about how fame and money corrupt an artist. The main problem is a lack of character development and logic. As a result, too much is left for the audience to figure out what's going on and what's really at stake with the two main characters. Overall, a largely unsatisfying film.
