Ben Stiller stars as a Hollywood TV sitcom writer struggling
with personal demons while juggling relationships with women who
continue to enable his lifestyle. Based on a autobiographical
book by former "Alf" writer Jerry Stahl, Permanent
Midnight is a black comedy with a deadly serious message.
Elizabeth Hurley co-stars rather effectively as his movie producer/girlfriend,
and Janeane Garofalo and Owen Wilson also have supporting roles.
This film is often quite graphic in its depiction of debiliatating
substance abuse. Certainly a departure for a Stiller, but his
work here is outstanding.
