Amy Heckerling was in town for this screening and took part in a Q&A afterwards. She was quite frank and open about the obstacles she faced in getting this made (and which parts of it came easily). My favorite anecdote was about how they were able to get away with more as a small comedy because the studio had just paid BIG $$$ to secure the rights and the stars for BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS, so that's where all…
This movie was pretty damn frustrating. More accurately--the star and subject of the film is often infuriating. This resulted in a series of extreme eyerolls on my part. There are some amusing bits, but I don't think it's for everyone. Maybe if you're a big fan of celebrity gossip or a huge fan of: Billy Corgan, Gus Van Sant, or Asia Argento, maybe you'd get some thrills. There is also some neat animation. Not enough to win me over, though.
