A film noir buff has his life turned on end by a femme fatale with a big adventure in mind. (imdb)
When real estate mogul Gavin Ransom (Noah Wyle) announces his plan to cover California's northern coast with scores of mini-mansions, his environmentalist sister, Olive (Ileana Douglas), launches a protest to stop him. But there's trouble ahead when Gavin begins falling for the pretty folk singer (Kate Mara) who's helping Olive's cause. This clever West Coast satire from writer-director Jonathan Parker is a twist on Henry James's The Bostonians.
In the tradition of "Waiting for Guffman" and "Take the Money and Run," a documentary film crew captures the pitfalls and pratfalls of reality show winner Dennis Flotchky. One million dollars richer and 150 pounds thinner but none the wiser, Dennis quickly and hilariously falls prey to the machinations of the Hollywood celebrity maker and the vultures and hangers-on the accompany it.
