It's hard to say if this film—being released seven years after it was made!—is
supposed to be a comedy or a drama, since it's neither funny nor moving. What is
clear is that it's a grindingly boring tale of a down-and-out actor (Costanzo)
who has a shot at a dream role in a Martin Scorsese film, if he can only can
keep his similarly desperate thespian friends from stealing the part. Both
Scorsese and Bill Murray show up in small supporting roles. Perhaps
premillennial jitters clouded their judgment.
