Straight shooter agent Joe Devine (Alec Baldwin) has been assigned to cook up an elaborate scheme to take down infamous mob boss John Gotti. He assumes the role of a Hollywood producer and tells all the right lies to enlist a stooge to help execute his sting. He finds unsuspecting wannabe director Steven Schats (Matthew Broderick), who’d do just about everything to get the chance to direct a “feature.” Schats falls hook, line, and sinker for the pitch, but what Devine doesn’t tell Schats is that the movie will never be made. Everything goes according to plan–until Devine and the suits at the Bureau start enjoying their new lives as “Hollywood players” a bit too much.
Starring: Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, Toni Collette, Tony Shalhoub, Calista Flockhart and Ray Liotta.
