I cherish Martin Short in this role. The scene where he has lunch with Kevin Bacon is one of my favorite pieces of cinema. Emily Longstreth is pretty. Like many auteurs, an atonal debut from Christopher Guest.
A fun lil flick about tryna make a pic and getting fricked by big wigs. Everything works out too nicely for the wonky white protagonist and his seven degrees of friendships in the end, but Jennifer Jason Leigh brings some much needed manic energy and the send-ups of industry standards may be meta/ about the film's pat arc. The late 80s hair, music, and style are all in full force
