Candian filmmaker Peter O'Brian directs the comedy Hollywood North, set in Toronto during the late '70s. Matthew Modine stars as Bobby Mayers, a stressed-out Canadian producer trying to make an action film called "Flight to Bogota." The production is inevitably troubled by numerous problems with the cast, crew, and finances. Alan Bates stars as crazed Hollywood actor Michael Baytes, the leading man who takes over the set. Jennifer Tilly plays Gillian Stevens, the nymphomaniac leading lady who seduces her younger co-star Frankie Candido (Fabrizio Filippo). Meanwhile, filmmaker Sandy Ryan (Deborah Kara Unger) is trying to capture the whole thing for a making-of documentary. Hollywood North premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2003. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Hollywood North
A terrible Canadian movie about the making of a terrible Canadian movie.
A forgettable fluffy Canadian film about runaway production during the heady days of Tax Credit filmmaking in the late 70s.
A curious artifact: A movie about an era that produced scores of movies most people never saw, and arriving nearly a generation after most people never saw them.
Hollywood North loses bite, first by being exactly the kind of movie it satirizes and by being so dated.
...the movie seems content to simply exist as a wacky comedy (how else do you explain the presence of Alan Thicke?), which is somewhat disappointing.
There isn't a lot that is original about
What the film lacks in bite and originality, it makes up for in humor and charm.
