Good Plot, Good casting, Good physical humor and jokes that could fly by your head if you dont carefully catch 'em. Hilarious and well written, you won't regret it.

Singing in the Desert

on 2/3/2013

Crystal's character is the perfect cynical foil. You love to both love and hate this guy. Cusack is a lot of fun. Hank Azara as always is a hoot, I think he is the most underrated comic actor in the country. Alan Arkan shines in his small role as does Christopher Walken who is the funniest character in the whole movie, I would love to see the picture he made. It is a great plot twist. Read More

Editors Note
Note Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Eddie (John Cusack) are AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS, two wildly popular celebrities who share their love on and off the screen in this farcical romantic comedy. But a messy breakup sends Eddie to a New Age Hollywood healing center and Gwen into the arms of her current affair, a Spanish bohunk short on charm (Hank Azaria). When their relationship troubles begin to threaten their superstar celebrity status and the release of their final film together the studio heads call in legendary press agent Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal) to helm the troubled film's press junket. Julia Roberts costars as Kiki, Gwen's personal assistant and sister who has always lived to please her demanding diva sister. Once overweight and severely self-conscious, Kiki's life revolves around her sister's ridiculous demands in this send up of ego-driven movie star vanity, penned cleverly with cynical insider wit by Crystal and Peter Tolan. Phillips manages to gather the warring superstars and gaggles of press together at a remote desert location for the all important press junket where his best laid plans begin to unravel in this hysterical parody of the movie industry replete with neurotic actors, eccentric crazed directors (Christopher Walken in a gem of a cameo), maniacal studio heads, and gossip-starved press who will do anything or anyone for the next big story.
