Movie Info

Maverick indie filmmaker Henry Jaglom moves from the sweet poignancy of his 2009 Irene in Time to knowing Hollywood satire with this romantic comedy that finds him teaming with actress Tanna Frederick for the third time. Frederick portrays Maggie Chase, a B-list star who longs to find love and fulfillment and achieve household-name status, but must contend with twin products of her wild behavior: a court-ordered electronic ankle bracelet and temporary house arrest.

Mocking Tinseltown is a pretty exhausted subject, and even Jaglom, a genuine insider, has a hard time making it fresh.

The best response is a big sigh.

Very little in it suggests that Jaglom has changed. But I liked it. He might have been a visionary after all.

Juggling love story, jewel heist, suicide and a hilarious 12-step meeting, Mr. Jaglom displays his usual loosey-goosey style and insider wit.

A sloppy vanity project ... rambling and toothless...

Jaglom can craft a scene and stage organic conversations, but if his saps and suckers never wander beyond a hermetic view of the real world, then so what?

By the end of the film, I just felt sorry for Frederick and wondered if another director might be able to find a way to showcase her better.

Josef von Sternberg had Marlene Dietrich. George Cukor had Katharine Hepburn. Henry Jaglom has, uh, Tanna Frederick.

A provocative and funny satire that's somewhat uneven, awkward and contrived. Tanna Frederick once again proves to be a sexy, charismatic and immensely talented actress.

Co-opting claims of having created an insufferable lead character, Jaglom includes a meta-moment in which Maggie uncovers a quote from real-life Boston Globe critic Ty Burr.

This wonderful character-driven film about a young woman who, with every fiber of her being, wants to be famous is funny, touching and oh-so romantic.
