Based on a true story, Comedy
This sharp, insider comedy nakedly exposes some of the madness of working in Hollywood. It's adapted from a memoir by film producer Art Linson, the man behind huge box office hits like Fight Club and Into the Wild. Linson's screen alter ego is played by his real-life close buddy, Robert De Niro, and Sean Penn and Bruce Willis appear playing hammed up versions of themselves - so it's fair to say the people who masterminded this film know what goes down behind-the-scenes. The horror of a film's first public test screening, actors' vanity and sadistic studio bosses are but a few of the tinseltown tribulations laid bare.
Bobby Bowfinger has been trying to break into moviemaking for years. He makes one last ditch attempt with an alien invasion movie called Chubby Rain.
