Review

Alan Alda gives the film industry a mild ransacking in this slight and horribly scored metafilm comedy. As always, Alda's characters are good-natured and often amusing, embodying Alda's sometimes keeneyed, sometimes bland observations. But despite a potentially original concept and angle, as well as Alda's familiar enjoyable atmosphere, the film never is able to rise out of conventionality, and it is mostly up to the cast to charm their way out of otherwise unremarkable situations.
