Time Out says

In an obvious nod to Rock Hudson, Guy Stone (Letscher), a gay 1950s movie star, agrees to wed the studio's irritatingly ditsy secretary (Preston), who's not savvy enough to realize that the speedy marriage is a hoax. When Guy starts working in a dumbed-down screen adaptation of a novel about labor unions, the book's author, socially conscious beefcake Rick Foster (Greer), becomes an unlikely love interest for the superficial cad. Richard Day's McCarthy-era satire clumsily alternates between campy frivolity and weighty subtext.
