Tagline: The true story of the greatest movie never made.
Plot: Hollywood screenwriter Steven Schats (MATTHEW BRODERICK) is on the A-List of complete failures. With visions of development deals dancing in his head, his only ambition in life is to make movies. Finally, after years of pitching his morbid screenplay to anyone with even a seventh degree of separation from a producer, he is suddenly about to join the ranks of the WGA’s working roster. Which explains why he’s eager to overlook the fact that Joe Devine (ALEC BALDWIN), who represents himself as the man who can green-light Steven’s low-budget movie, is obviously more than a few film frames short of any box office insight.
In a town where perception is reality, and imposters outnumber unproduced screenplays two to one, Devine is not who he claims to be. In truth, he’s an agent—not of the William Morris variety— but with the FBI, and he’s on a covert mission to ferret out the mob with criminal ties to Hollywood. While hardly the sharpest tool in the crime fighting shed, Devine is as determined to be a star at the Bureau as Schats is to be one in his industry. And he’s just clever enough to make the trusting screenwriter believe that at last he’s on the fast track to filmmaking success.
