    Release Date:

    A viciously funny portrait of the Hollywood rich and not-so-famous based on David Rabe`s sensational smash hit Broadway play.

    Hyper-intense casting agent Eddie (Sean Penn) is on the verge of a lifestyle crisis and fuelling his insecurity, along with his cocaine habit, are his three best friends - business partner Micky (Kevin Spacy), hungary-for-sucess actor Phil (Chazz Palminteri) and desperate writer/producer Artie (Gary Shandling). As their personal lives threaten to veer into a catastrophe far more interesting than anything they`re peddling to the film studios, three women enter their self-obsessed universe to shatter what little cool reserve they have left.

    For after Darlence, the love of Eddie`s life, hitchhiking hooker Donna and perpetually stoned exotic dancer Bonnie (Meg Ryan) leave indelible marks on the quartet`s ultra macho world, nothing can ever be the same again.

    A provocative, witty and brilliantly written comedy drama laying bare Tinseltowm`s glittering and seamy sides and brought to sparkling life by a compelling all-star ensemble cast.
