Movie Info

In this Canadian documentary, two young filmmakers attend the Toronto Film Festival and pitch a film concept to various celebrities. Their film idea, titled The Dawn, concerns a Mafia don who goes for a hernia operation but gets a sex change instead. During the 1996 Toronto fest, they approach Roger Ebert, Norman Jewison (at a packed press conference), Eric Stoltz (leaving a limo), Al Pacino, and others without much success. On a roll, they leave Toronto for Hollywood, getting advice from Arthur Hiller and Neil Simon and finding an agent who expresses interest. Shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Pitch

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

In essence, pic is a good 15 -minute TV comedy sketch needlessly stretched to feature length.

February 23, 2012 | Full Review…

A non-fiction first feature that pits two homegrown obsessives against the Hollywood elite.

May 8, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It doesn't help that Hotz and Rice are incredibly obnoxious -- these are certainly not the sort of people we want to root for.
