Unrelentingly irritating

HWMFTY is supposed to be a parody, with the stars (minor and major) playing caricatures of themselves for comedic effect. Unfortunately, the main character is so unrelentingly irritating that she drains the comedy from every scene she's in. There's far too much "Ha, ha, look at the drunk person stumbling around and pissing off all her friends," which just isn't funny at all. The acting is top-notch, for what it's worth: Halley Feiffer plays a completely horrifying version of herself as a narcissistic, drunken, self-pitying, manipulative, obnoxious, soulless zombie whose only connection to humanity is her unquenchable thirst for fame. It'd be a brilliant performance if only it were a character worth playing or worth watching. The cameos by big-name stars get much kinder treatment, and almost (but not quite) save the movie from drowning in its own pity party. Do yourself a favor, give this one a miss!

This film is about an young up and coming actress who wants to become famous and decides to make her own movie. On the road to making this movie, she is determined to do anything to make it happening movie by including nudity and getting any big time celebrity involved like Ben Stiller, Jesse Eisenberg, Vanessa Williams, Ralph Macchio, Michael Urie, Mamie Gummer (Meryl Streep's daughter) and so on. It is really funny in a quirky way.

I was surprised when I saw Ben stiller's cameo as well as Jesse Eisenberg cameo! They had a very good cast! I was cracking up when I saw Ben stiller when he came on because he was very funny in that scene! The story and the production value was great and I think that the director did a very good job in making this film! Watch it and I think you will enjoy it!
