The Understudy (2012)

My Rating

Movie Info

Terminally unemployed, dating challenged Rebecca (Marin Ireland) thinks she's scored her big break on Broadway by landing a job with the fickle Ian (Richard Kind) helping him manage the darling diva Simone (Kelli Giddish). Instead of a dream job, Rebecca finds herself scrubbing floors while careening from one disastrous relationship to the next. When Simone confronts her, she "accidentally" shoves her down a flight of stairs. Suddenly a star is born as Rebecca takes over, but then a bigger Diva

"The Understudy" isn't abysmal, though it certainly is off target.

Seems at times to aspire to being an edgy look at the transgressions a would-be Broadway star will commit to land the big role. Other times, it seems unsure of what it wants to be at all.

It's all sharp, well-performed stuff until things go from darkly comic to just plain dark, derailing -- and dragging out -- the otherwise absorbing story. Still, this one's a cut above.
