Walter Price is directing a movie that has gone over budget. Having been kicked out of his New Hampshire filming location, Price must quickly find a new, low budget location that can quickly pass as a 19th Century village. He soon comes across the quaint town of Waterford, Vermont. According to the brochure the town is equipped with a firehouse, a mill and a population eager for the glitter of Hollywood - Price thinks he has it made. However, he soon finds out that the mill, a crucial piece in the film, was destroyed several years ago in a fire. This is the first in a series of mishaps, including a star who prefers young girls and a suspicious car crash, that threaten to shut the film down.

A lovely film. Written and directed by David Mamet - but a long way from the tough, raw scripts that you expect from him. This reveals a love for movies, the way they're made - and what can go wrong!

A fantastic star cast are clearly enjoying themselves too - and it's so sharp - from the opening lines from William H. Macy (never better) as the film's director, forced to embrace a fresh New England location for his movie after they were drummed out of their previous town location due to one of his castmember's predeliction for underage girls (Alec Baldwin - wonderfully seedy).

Also central is the plight of his screenwriter Phillip Seymour Hoffman - forced to do a re-write without his beloved typewriter - for which he seeks help from local shopkeeper and small-town all-rounder Rebecca Pidgeon - for whom one can't help falling, just as he does. (Mamet's wife, by the way - lucky man!)

And there's Sarah Jessica Parker too, as the lead actress, who refuses to lose her top for the film - though she might just lose her sanity.

And David Paymer as the rapier-tongued producer, who drops in to kick everyone's arse, and get the show on the road, and the film made - whatever the human cost!

This film is a joy. I loved it so much, I had to give my copy away - and order another. And at its current price (less than a MacDonalds burger), everyone who loves witty film drama, should make sure they do the same. Absolutely terrific!

And, by the way, if viewers see a resemblance to Truffaut's "La Nuit Americaine" ("Day for Night"), then so what? There's surely room for two great films about trying to make a film! Love 'em both!

This is a fine film with a good ensemble cast. Not mind blowing but plenty of laughs. Another fine understated performance from the late, and missed, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

A funny, quirky drama with an interesting cast. Well worth watching if you like seeing behind-the-scenes of filmmaking in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way...

Enjoyed it in the cinema, and on this DVD. Many 'in jokes' if you are in the business, but fun at any level!
