America's Sweethearts


Set slam-bang in the middle of Hollywood's movie industry, this is the tale of two-recently separated movie stars, her sister, and their studio publicist. The former lovers had starred in a string of romantic movies, and their recent breakup was threatening to destroy the box-office success of their upcoming, final collaboration. So the studio publicist tries to play Cupid to get them back together again. A couple of minor problems get in the way, like her new Spanish boyfriend, and an unexpected love interest for him...

Ian Douglas: Have not laughed so hard at a comedy since ''Dogma''. Brilliant script, designed to appeal to critics and general public alike, in this great sendup of the Hollywood movie machine, and the people in it. Well done all round, with hardly a dull moment.
