Playing like a junior version of an early David Mamet talkfest, this arch look at the ups and downs of struggling screenwriters has more than its share of well-landed zingers.

Sure, The Bluetooth Virgin may not find love right around the corner, but it's a film I'll have no problem recommending 20 years from now. That's got to count for something.

The film is low budget and uneven in spots, but the dialogue is biting, Russell Brown's direction is often razor-sharp and the action climaxes with a virtuoso cameo appearance by the great Karen Black as a wily and wise script consultant.

Fitfully, intriguingly captures the ever-present tension between between art and commerce, and again sets on a tee the age-old question: is it an audience that makes a work a legitimate piece of art?

Russell Brown's script can be accused of being all talk and no action, but it is intelligent, insightful and often quite funny.

A primer on keeping the pedal to the proverbial medal when your whole world seems to have lost faith in you.

Simultaneously insightful and idiotic, the minimalist pic features a succession of experts providing their two cents on Why We Write, the pitfalls of friendship and the need for outside validation.

It's not too much to hazard that Billy Wilder would have enjoyed The Blue Tooth Virgin.

So pretentious it stinks from the screen, "The Blue Tooth Virgin" is a stillborn experiment in screenwriting 101.

Brown's film consists of a series of long, talky, humorless takes, during which the old argument about art versus commerce comes to the fore.

This is self-vindicating L.A. narcissism that tries even less hard than usual.

Neither blue teeth nor virgins make appearances, but Russell Brown's torpid indie does deliver plenty of ponderous chitchat about truth, deception, criticism and artists' motivations.

For a film so keen on creating humor off the inaptness of a character's script, Blue Tooth Virgin should have double-checked its own screenwriting chops.
