Movie Info

While outside appearances indicate that Brian Roberts (Robbie Bryan) has everything -- a beautiful girlfriend (Kelly Ripa), a successful career, and a stellar family, to name a few -- the truth is that he dreams of being an actor. When a college professor urges him to move to New York and work for his goal, it looks as though he may lose his girlfriend in the process. The Stand-In also features Dan Grimaldi, David Ogden Stiers, and Jaid Barrymore.

Audience Reviews for The Stand-In

I chose to watch this purely for Kelly Ripa. For a first role, she did okay considering what she had to work with. As for the rest... garbage. Poorly written dialogue and awful performances by Bryan (who wrote it) and the rest of the cast. I realize this is an independent, low budget movie. That explains the poor production values which can be overlooked, but it doesn't excuse the uninteresting story, bland characters and unbelievably bad acting. Not worth the rental, not even for Ripa fans.
