It's a down-and-dirty fight, Hollywood style, when classic producer Sonny Wexler (Burt Reynolds) takes one last shot at the big time, to try and save his failing career. His chance comes in the form of a brilliant script optioned from a promising young writer (Sean Astin). But when hot studio executive Damon Black (Benjamin Bratt) undercuts the deal and eases Sonny out, Sonny has seventy-two hours to come up with enough money to purchase the script. In desperation, he turns to the Mob. What ensues is a dangerous game of lies, treachery and double cross with Hollywood's shrewdest players vying for the next big blockbuster hit...at any cost.

I'm not quite sure whether this movie tries to be a comedy or a drama, or both. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite succeed as either. The all-star cast is great (especially Rod Steiger, Bratt and Ann-Margret), but the script is uneven. There are several minor plot lines that are never developed, such as the one including Wexler's pill-popping wife Ann-Margret. She appears in several scenes and then goes off in a cab to somewhere (rehab?). The relation between Reynolds and his former partner Charles Durning work better, and Durning's character is, unlike Ann-Margret's, important to the plot. The jazz soundtrack sometimes work, but is more often funny in a way I don't think was intended.
All in all, this is a disappointing film that is almost, but not quite, made worthwhile by the acting.
