The Old Hollywood Story
Oscar-nominated writer Kirstie Alley (as Byrdie Langdon) is getting long in the tooth and wide in the girth. When hot young Brittney Irvin (as Stacy Herskowitz) rejects Ms. Alley's latest script as "too old" for Hollywood's target audience, Alley hatches an even better plot. She has hot young nephew Eric Christian Olsen (as Jason Langdon) pose as a new screenplay writer, looking for work. A BMW car salesman, Mr. Olsen charms the panties off female studio executives and sells Alley's scripts, too...
Problems occur when a sample script called "Father and Son" is discovered to be a word-for-word rip-off of "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979). Alley correctly realized Hollywood youth wouldn't remember the film, but her savvy friend Stacy Grant (as Andrea Davis) becomes Olsen's latest lover and could blow everyone's cover. The ending is a little weak, by George Beckerman's "Lifetime" TV-Movie "Write & Wrong" is an otherwise a very well cast and nicely edited (by Scot Kelly) update of an old Hollywood story.
