Synopsis

Ben (De Niro) is already in over his head trying to balance the tug-of-war of having two ex-wives and two different families with his latest business venture – the boldly “visionary” movie Fiercely starring Sean Penn (Sean Penn) – when everything that can go wrong goes completely screwy. Fiercely looks like an audience-offending flop which draws the ire of iron-gloved studio chief Lou (Catherine Keener), who forces him into tangling with the film’s rebellious and drug-addled director Jeremy (Michael Wincott). Meanwhile, he’s confused and bewitched by his ex Kelly (Robin Wright Penn) who can’t make up her mind about him; shocked by his daughter Zoe (Kristen Stewart), who seems to have grown up overnight; infuriated by his screenwriter friend Scott (Stanley Tucci) who’s trying to make a deal with him while making moves on his former wife; horrified by a hirsute Bruce Willis (Bruce Willis) and flummoxed by Willis’ nebbish agent Dick, who’s scared to death of his own clients.
