Special Features


Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! February 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I've been to Cannes and this film captures it to a T. If you're looking for a Johnny Depp film, this isn't it - he does a ten minute cameo in it with Jim Jarmusch. But it's the funniest ten minutes I've ever seen Johnny Depp be. If you are interested in film festivals, or wanted to know what the real Cannes festival is like, this video is hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious trip to Cannes April 20, 2004
By A Customer
I've been to the Cannes Film festival, and this film captures it perfectly - naked women on the beach and blowhards selling films, while celebrities cajole and cavort with each other. If you're a fan of filmmaking, look for cameos from the Director of the Usual Suspects along with Benicio del Toro, Robert Evans and others. The film is laugh out loud funny, and don't know why it took this long to be on DVD. Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Film, Good Night's Entertainment July 1, 2002
Sy is a movie producer who is in Cannes for the festival, as usual. However, he needs for someone else to pay all his bills there so takes a bet, that he can turn a young nobody seen on the beach into a credible writer that he can use to raise ...millions while in Cannes. Not a single word has been written but Sy sees that as no impediment to approaching every star in the universe to become involved in his movie, with virtually all of them saying yes, from Johnny Depp to Dennis Hopper to John Malkovich and so on. A hilarious, droll view at the film world that is light as a souffle. It won't stick with you but it is fun for a night.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very boring with walk-ons by fmaous people March 10, 2005
This movie is very mildly amusing for about ten minutes. Yes, it is slightly interesting to see the Cannes environment, but not enough to watch this film. It could be a cure for insomnia, though. Fans who are looking forward to seeing their favorite actors in a satire will be disappointed. You can count in seconds the amount of time any famous actor is on the screen, and it's really just very boring. All those fans of Johnny Depp: be particularly warned. He may have co-star billing, but blink and you'll miss him.
