I can understand why this was an apparent direct-to-video movie. It portrays Hollywood as the cesspool it is, but in an oddly affectionate way. It proudly wears its political incorrectness on its sleeve and some of the more sophomoric humor doesn't work, but the result is strangely big-hearted. A washed-up TV actress who is more trouble than she's worth is kidnapped and her handlers see this as a way to get her name back in the spotlight. It showcases fine performances from the two leads, Heather McComb and Stephanie Hodes. (For some reason IMDB lists a couple of the bit players and hardly any of the number of well-known actors in the cast.) McComb really anchors the film and Hodes is a delight. Jillian Bell was more restrained than I've ever seen her (especially in a comedy) and just when I wondered where Nip/Tuck's John Hensley had gone, here he is. As I watched, I was thinking the plot was predictable, but it had a few surprises in store for me. All in all, a good diversion on a rainy afternoon.
