Description:

A comedy about a screenwriter (Wuhl) who's old movie script is read by a producer (Landau) and the search for financial backers begins. But it seems that each money source (Aiello, DeNiro, Wallach) has their own mistress that they want put into the film. Gradually, the screenwriter is forced to make changes to his script to accommodate these backers until he finally sees no semblance of his original ideas in the writing. (Bob Stebbins)

Robert Wuhl stars as a movie director who's got integrity, vision, and a serious script - but no career. Martin Landau is a sleazy producer who introduces Wuhl to Robert De Niro, Danny Aiello and Eli Wallach - three guys with money who are willing to invest in the movie. But with one catch: each one wants his girlfriend to be the star. Putting the deal together and keeping the mistress happy turns into a hilarious expose of the truth about Hollywood. Robert Wuhl, Martin Landau, Robert De Niro, Danny Aiello, Eli Wallach. (Amazon.com)
