Actually, the funniest parts of the movie are excerpts from the film that Cameron is originally nominated for.

The Hollywood stuff at the beginning with Glenn Close as an Oscar presenter and Matt Dillon as a puffed-up star on the rise is as funny and as nasty as anything in Libby Gelman-Waxner's columns.

For the most part, this hilarious caper's gay characters are knee-deep in the American mainstream.
