A movie crew invades a small town whose residents are all too ready to give up their values for showbiz glitz.
A quote from this film inspired the name of the production company Gift for Fiction entertainment, which produced the films "Less Like Me" and "Smile."
Well, I'm gonna solve it here or this bimbo you sent me is gonna be doing a donkey act on public access television. Her tits her tits her tits her tits. That she signed in her contract! We hired her because of 10 years at the Actors Studio, the way ...
Just before the P.A. accidentally wipes the "Dinner w/ the Mayor" note from the whiteboard, it's clear that the penmanship is quite different from what Bill Macy's character had written just a moment before. Macy had written "Dinner" at an upward angle from left to right, but now the same word is written clearly straight across.
At the very end of the closing credits, immediately following a brief jazzy instrumental, a voice (David Mamet) says, "Once more, and can you try to play the notes this time."
