The unlikely friendship between a lowlife "paparazzo" (Steve Buscemi) and a sympathetic street kid (Michael Pitt) is put to the test when an even more unlikely romance develops between the photographer's recently homeless protege and a world-famous pop-music star (Alison Lohman). The tone of writer-director Tom DiCillo's film veers disconcertingly from bleak cynicism to sophomoric fantasy, so that in the end neither the often witty script nor some genuinely impressive performances among the lead actors can save this story from degenerating into an unconvincing muddle. Relentless rough and crude language and some profanity, much crude humor, rear and partial nudity, some skimpy costuming, innuendo and implied unmarried sexual liaisons. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
