Storyline

A documentary team gets a grant to do a film on a rare fatal disease that is attacking homeless people. However, they quickly find the film too depressing. Ducking into a nightclub, they discover a young Manhattan comedienne and decide instead to follow her as she makes the circuit of auditions in L.A. as she tries to get a TV pilot. Unfortunately, she has failed to tell her boyfriend of this move. He decides he will trail her out west. There, the boyfriend runs into an old friend who has already made a break on a TV pilot. Seizing the opportunity, the actress turns her attentions to the established actor. However, the actress goes nowhere in auditions, but her ex-boyfriend is suddenly noticed and becomes the next hot prospect. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

26 August 2000 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

This movie will air soon on PBS. My girlfriend works for WGBH in Boston and brought a VHS copy home. Despite the questionable title (which I still don't quite get) this is a fantastic, clever, self-assured movie. A few familiar faces pop up in it (notably Andy Dick, and the crazy UFO guy from Waiting for Guffman), but for the most part all the faces were new to me. The film takes the shape of a mockumentary, and the story follows a stand-up comic from New York and her boyfriend as she heads to LA for pilot season and he tags along. Gradually, the boyfriend gets sucked into the LA lifestyle and begins hunting as frantically as everyone else for a TV deal. Then their relationship (never exactly healthy and stable) begins to break down. Along the way, LA culture is mercilessly skewered, but don't make up your mind that this is just a shot at LA-- everyone is raked over the coals before the final shot, and you won't quite guess what's really happening until the last scene. This is one of those small independent films so full of brilliant performers you can't imagine how you haven't seen them all before. Nearly every performance is note-perfect and hilarious. Watch TV listings for this one, and do not miss it.
