In a now classic spoof of the Hollywood star making machine, film producer Sy Lerner (Seymour Cassel) makes a bet with a fellow film executive that he can turn any nobody into a star at the Cannes Film Festival. A New York cab driver who is visiting the festival is chosen as the test subject to settle the bet and Sy uses his skills of hype and manipulation to turn the cab driver, Frank (Francesco Quinn), into the talk of the town. Set against the lush backdrop of the Mediterranean during the world's most celebrated film festival, industry professionals mix with starlets, wannabes and paparazzi followed by the back room dynamics of hype, deal-making and manipulation. Director Richard Martini's film is as relevant today as when it was first released and features laugh-out-loud appearances by Johnny Depp and Rebecca Broussard with cameos by John Malkovich, Benicio Del Toro, James Brolin, Harvey Weinstein, Jim Jarmusch and more.
