Subversive razor edge satire about the shallow aspects of Hollywood. The film's point of interest never gets lost among the story or surplus amount of star cameos. The ending leaves a perfectly cynical and meta coda to the film that provided a great final laugh.

Screenplay was refreshing and the lines were alright: June – “Life’s too short.” Griffin –“Keep it to yourself.” “I would like to start over.” Not that funny but t...
