These nice little low budget films can often be a lot more enjoyable than the big blockbuster ones. This one is kinda silly, it's got plenty of chuckles. The main character thinks he's got more talent than he has, he is annoying but he does funny things. There's a bit where the main character 'auditions' big name actors/directors for the film of his book. He does this by goin to the venice film festival and asking questions to them at the q/a sessions. For instance he asks george clooney would he ever be interested in appearing in a low budget irish film. So basically this guy has george clooney and chaz palminterry and melanie griffith appear in his film for free! Clever! 7/10
