The film, written and directed by Jeff Nathanson ("Catch Me If You Can"), sets up Broderick as an eager wanna-be film director who has just landed his first big gig under Hollywood producer Joe Devine (Baldwin). Unbeknownst to the amateur auteur is that the movie is just a front for an FBI attempt to take down a big name mob boss.
Broderick (The Producers) appears in the film opposite recent Twenieth Century star Baldwin. Other theatre folk in the flick include Toni Collette (The Wild Party), Tony Shalhoub (The Heidi Chronicles), Calista Flockhart (The Glass Menagerie), Tim Blake Nelson (The Beard of Avon), Ray Liotta (Match), Thomas McCarthy (Noises Off), Evan Jones (Conversation Piece), Jon Polito (Death of a Salesman) and James Rebhorn (Dinner at Eight, the upcoming Twelve Angry Men). Joan Cusack and Pat Morita also appear in the film.
