      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Since the movie's center is wrong, not much of anything works. Rated: 2/4 Nov 12, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This entertaining teen dramedy is a rare thing: a movie about show business that's an argument for the nobility of "normalcy". A pre-mumblecore indie that has many of that genre's pluses (naturalism, relatable emotions, clear goals) without its big minus: bad / no written dialogue. Hulce nails the wide-eyed naivete, but Langella is the scene-stealer; ridiculous, wise, unhinged, egotistical, & fragile. With a great ending, it's a solid little forgotten 80s sleeper that surpasses its amateurish moments. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review s r It entertained while showing behind the scenes what show business is really all about. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
