Movie Info

Young, handsome, and ambitious, Adam arrives from New York with dreams of making it big in L.A. He moves in with his zany best friend Candy who, between auditions, spends her time at the gym, shopping, or looking for a wealthy man. Adam gets off to a rocky start, complete with parking tickets and an insufferable job answering phones. A new job in production looks promising, but soon Adam finds himself dealing with down-and-out directors, washed up starlets, and meth addicts, as he starts to loose himself in a seamy underworld of gay porn and prostitution. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Going Down In La-la Land

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

It's...familiar plotting and by-the-numbers characterization that sinks this earnest, gay-contoured take on the evergreen making-it-big melodrama.

May 18, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A young acting hopeful finds that things are tough in Tinseltown in this not exactly revelatory gay-themed drama.

Apr 19, 2012 | Full Review…

"Going Down" falls well short of compelling, either as a coming-of-age film, a satire or a romance.

Apr 19, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A lo-fi feature blend of True West Hollywood Story and a gay fairy tale.

Apr 17, 2012 | Full Review…

A creditable if familiar portrait of one aspiring-actor newbie's disillusioning wade into the rough waters of Hollywood.

Going Down doesn't stray far from the Hollywood Cautionary Tale formula - but credit for making a downward spiral feel as gritty as a mid-afternoon trip to Pinkberry.
