About the Movie

In this romantic comedy, a discouraged plumber, David (Martin Donovan), decides that he'd get more respect and have more luck with the ladies if he were a movie director. So he decides to pose as one. Bribing his casting agent best friend RJ (Kevin Carroll), David sets up auditions for a movie that he's not really directing. To complete the process, he steals the script of aspiring writer and neighbor, Toni (Mary-Louise Parker). Before David and RJ know what is happening, their project has become the most talked about script in New York City's indie film scene. But when Toni discovers David's less-than-moral behavior, she threatens to pull the plug. That is, until she realizes this might be her only chance to see her film get made.
