Plot Summary

In pursuit of a crime kingpin, government operative Joe Devine (Alec Baldwin) poses as an entertainment industry big shot in hopes of leveraging Mafia-connected union man Tommy Sanz (Tony Shalhoub). To enact the guise, Joe must pretend to be filming an actual movie. So he taps would-be director Steven Schats (Matthew Broderick) without explaining that the flick is a ruse. Joe is so taken, however, with his posh new lifestyle that he begins to forget all about catching criminals.

    An often funny if slight satire that's never as edgy as it thinks it is or as sharply focused as it needs to be. show more

    The film doesn't always work, but it captures the buzz of moviemaking, and that's infectious. show more

    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    Not a well-oiled enterprise but more of a series of laughs separated by waits for more laughs. It has a kind of earnest, eager quality, and it's so screwy you feel affection for it. show more
