Editorial Reviews

After a series of Hollywood flops, famed director Harris Chappell (Jeffrey Tambor) returns to New York to relaunch his Broadway career. But Chappell's triumphant comeback begins to spiral out of control into a wild night of comic misadventure after meeting struggling actor Spencer (Jesse Plemons) and his old flame Didi (Melinda McGraw).

I never heard of this movie, or of anyone in the cast. I tried it only because Amazon feedback rated it as four stars, which I interpreted to be at least promising. I was really surprised. This film is great. It's funny, realistic enough to be at least halfway credible, very good script and screenplay, and excellent acting. It WILL be boring to audiences who crave explosions, superheros, and aliens from outer space . . . but that's about it. If you enjoy well written and produced humor intended for educated adults then this film suits the bill.

Essential "small" movie ,i.e.. film for the folks in the relatively newly formed colony of Tribeca ( although Deniro says movie), that succeeds through
the energy,brilliance and enthusiasm of the ensemble cast and director. The ensemble cast features Jeffrey Tambor in the lead role-he turns in a remarkable performance that is the pivot for the rest of the ensemble. The challenge is the setting-the entire movie is set in one location-a restaurant. As you watch you begin to think this has more of the stuff of a play, not a movie , yet it works. It works not simply because of great dialogue, that's the stuff of theater not moving pictures, but primarily of the director's ability to tell a story.... and to find the performing talent to bring that story to fruition. The plot-so if you are interested in a very funny version of how a play gets to Broadway this is for you. It will hold your interest from the start.

NOT "Scathingly Hilarious" not hilarious at all, I wouldn't even characterize it as funny I didn't laugh out loud once. It was also a little slow. But neither of these short comings are damnable... I found this to be a pleasant and amusing little film that was populated with somewhat shallow but engaging characters. It was mercifully short at 1:25 if it had dragged on for 2 hours I would be less charitable. I see this as a watered-down version of The Producers, definitely not a bad movie.... just a little weak.

I could not watch much of this. It was overly predictable.
I had to skip much of it as it seemed to drag on.
I think there are better comedy movies out there.
Try Get Shorty instead for example.

Really good film with great parts, but several missed opportunities. Jeffrey Tambor was great as were Jesse Plemons, Melinda McGraw, and Jill Marie Jones. Melinda McGraw plays upscale sexy/sultry parts extremely well and she was perfect in this part. Jesse Plemons played his part well, but they really could have cleaned him up a bit. He looked like a homeless guy who had no business meeting anyone, let alone a famous Broadway director at a swank NY restaurant. He looked better in "Breaking Bad". I couldn't take him seriously in this role even though he played it well. He never tucked in his shirt and his hair was terrible. Overall, I enjoyed the film but there were several comedic misses.

Funny and entertaining! A look into a crazy world of egos, money, promises, dreams, and hopes.
I just love Jeffrey Tambor in anything he is in.

As a fan of Jeffrey Tambor, I was looking forward to cozying up on a fridig winter evening to watch the movie. I was not disappointed. It was an intelligent, fun, well-paced movie with a nice surprise ending. Full of wit and humor, but not crass in anyway. A nice change of pace in today's market. Enjoy!
