Brannagh takes Allen's place as a neurotic and talkative journalist writing (or trying to) about celebrities. The film covers his entanglements with brat Hollywood stars and starlets in episodes and follows his own screwed up love life as well.

It's thought of as one of Allen's minor works, but I really liked it. It's funny enough and has some dead-centre potshots at the rich and famous but several things are never made clear - among them how a neurotic magazine writer can get so close to (and sleep with) so many Hollywood stars.
