The film was produced, directed and cowritten by Anthony Kramreither, who was inspired by his own experience as a producer whose creative ambitions had been eclipsed by a commercial imperative to keep his Brightstar Pictures studio operating by making low-budget B-movies.[1]


The young filmmaker, Timothy (Jonathan Welsh), has a screenplay about an orphan and his dog who are in search of a loving family. Film investors force Timothy into making a movie with sex and violence.

Role of Jim CarreyEdit

Jim Carrey plays a small silent role as the naked cameraman Ralph Parker. After Carrey became a major international film star, however, subsequent video releases of the film emphasized him as its star over most of the actual main cast.
