He believes the experience of directing a film starring his struggling actress of a wife (Lisa Chess) will be a fun and relatively easy way to revitalize their marriage. Unfortunately, the decision to cast Alan Rosenberg to play Johnny proves disastrous -- Rosenberg is incredibly difficult to work with and Pressman's

It might be the first vanity project within a vanity project.

Most entertaining is Alan Rosenberg's wicked spoof of actorly neuroses.

We get, basically, a love note from one to the other. But what we don't get is an absorbing movie.

There's little that's particularly dramatic or funny for the outsider in this autobiographical vanity project.

A sharply written, directed, and acted character piece brimming with good-natured laughter and real affection.

A delightful little sleeper of a love story.

It's art imitating life imitating art -- or something like that. Whatever, it's not very good.

A blend of fact and fiction that audiences might find puzzling and at times a little self-indulgent, but sometimes very funny and occasionally quite touching.

Proves that playing together can bring zest to any sagging long-term love relationship.
