| Madcap black comedy
Very offbeat black comedy like a low budget version of The Player with the great John Savage starring as a former big time director who literally has his house burnt down to finance a movie. The beginning of the film is a bit slow but then it turns into a manic rush of madcap highjinx watching Savage with his B Producer 'uh nut ball friend (James Wilder) trying to get their movie made. Great cast with even a cameo by Mick Fleetwood.
