Storyline

A studio script screener gets on the bad side of a writer by not accepting his script. The writer is sending him threatening postcards. The screener tries to identify the writer in order to pay him off so he'll be left alone, and then in a case of mistaken identity gone awry, he accidentally gives the writer solid ammunition for blackmail. This plot is written on a backdrop of sleazy Hollywood deals and several subplots involving the politics of the industry.

Worth watching at least once but I think I will watch it again. I thought this was pretty good and how can you not like Whoopie?

Not bad22 July 2015

Satirical and slightly black comedy about the daily life of a movie studio executive and the dirty deals he gets involved with behind the scenes. Good performances by the cast. Tim Robbins is brilliant.

I thought this was a pretty good movie. Tim Robbins and Whoopi Goldberg are a couple of my favorite actors. Storyline is good, comedy too. Worth viewing at least once.
