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 (6)

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

Top Critic

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

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

New York Times
Top Critic

The film can feel both refreshingly honest and embarrassingly Lifetime movie-like.

Slant Magazine
Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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