R | | Comedy, Crime, Thriller
An insane independent film director and his renegade group of teenage filmmakers kidnap an A-list Hollywood actress and force her to star in their underground film.
Stephen Dorff and Jack Noseworthy played best friends six years earlier in director Jefery Levy's 1994 Generation X black comedy, S.F.W. (1994).
Cherish, this is America, you know. It's a free country. People can make bad movies if they so desire.
Cecil: Not anymore they don't!
Cherish: You think just cause you've made "real" movies you're better than me, don't you?
Honey: Oh, please.
Cherish: Do you know why I became a porno ...
In an early scene before Honey is escorted to the premiere, Ricki Lake's character says "We'll be right with you," but her lips don't move.
The credits thank "Fred and Ginger" both insinuating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, the dance duo, and "Fred e Ginger" a movie by Federico Fellini, paying homage to the duo.
There was a quick shot in earlier prints of the movie theater showing the director's cut of "Patch Adams", where we see the sign advertising the director's cut. This shot can still be seen on the intro to the DVD menu, and in one of the trailers.
