When an estranged and bitter Hollywood darling couple have to be friends for the press showing of their last film together, things are furhter complicated by the her (Zeta-Jones) shrinking violet sister (Roberts) and assitant, who's in love with the leading man (Cusack).

There are a few laughs but otherwse it's a light hearted rom-com grounded in the 'throw good natured barbs at Hollywood' subgenre. It's interesting to see a little about how the Hollywood publicity machine works – although by no means take the finer points as gospel – if you can stomach the constant product placement.
