Plot Summary
Charlie Berns (William H. Macy) is a movie producer who convinces a major studio to fund a film about British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. But he rewrites the script, transforming the film into an action flick for Bobby Mason (LL Cool J), a recent convert to Judaism who is eager to play the Jewish statesman. During production, Mason is kidnapped by a radical political organization, and it is up to Berns and development executive Deidre Hearn (Meg Ryan) to save the film and its star.
