Sometimes, you wonder if some of these actors with stars in their eyes and dreams in their heads wouldn't be better off just working as a movie extra for a couple years and calling it good. By the time I watched the end of the film, it was obvious to me that MANY of these actress had a "light bulb moment" where they realized they were wasting their time--but they wouldn't actually admit it. They tried to be positive and hopeful, but their EYES said just the opposite. Anyone who wants to be an actress should watch this film and ask themselves--honestly--if THIS is the life they want to live for the next 10-15 years. I personally found it sad and depressing, and I felt like saying "OK, Ladies, once more, WITH FEELING." I think most of them could have had much more success, money and accomplishment by pursuing OTHER careers. Here's a good question for someone who wants to pursue acting, and claims to be committed to it for the long hall: "If you could know RIGHT NOW that you will never make it in show business, would you still spend 10-15 years of your life committed to acting, and enjoying every minute of the journey?" My guess is the answer would be NO.
