Odd ensemble drama which connects a magazine journalist (Julia Roberts) interviewing an up-and-coming actor (Blair Underwood), a writer (David Hyde Pierce) who pens awful screenplays in his spare time, his unhappy executive wife (Catherine Keener) who fires employees to relieve her marital stress, and her neurotic sister (Mary McCormack) who fears she will never find true love. Director Steven Soderbergh's quirky movie within a movie is witty and tedious in equal parts, with self-absorbed characters that evoke little empathy and a story line that doesn't bring its disparate pieces satisfactorily together. A shadowy sexual encounter, brief frontal nudity and drug content, a suicide, an extramarital affair, some sexual references and recurring rough language with some profanity. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
