Enemies of Laughter synopsis
Though he considers himself a bust, playwright and screenwriter Paul (David Paymer) is drawing lots of attention from the creative community. Theatrical producer Carla (Rosalind Chao) wants to mount a production of one of Paul's scripts, and documentarian Sam's (Judge Reinhold) latest project will focus on Paul's career. Because his last play bombed, Paul is gun-shy about returning to the theater. He'd rather devote his time to romancing Carla, but that just might not be in the cards.
