Who better than the writer of "Showgirls," Joe Eszterhas, to pen a scathing satire of Hollywood politics? When he loses creative control of a $200 million action film, director Eric Idle can't have his name pulled off it and substitute the official pseudonym "Alan Smithee," because that's his real name. Idle's solution: steal the only negative from the lab and hold the film hostage. Ryan O'Neal and Richard Jeni co-star. And yes, this comedy's director, Arthur Hiller, had his name replaced with Alan Smithee. 86 min. Widescreen; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital Surround, Spanish Dolby Digital stereo.
