Peter Bogdanovich directs Michael Frayn's brilliant Tony-winning play about the trials and tribulations of a group of inept British actors--transformed here to American characters--as they prepare for the opening of a show. Director Lloyd Fellowes (Michael Caine) can't seem to get Dotty Otley (Carol Burnett) to remember which props go where and when, perhaps because she's too distracted by her budding relationship with Garry Lejeune (John Ritter). Frederick Dallas (Christopher Reeve) is having problems at home, which is fine with Belinda Blair (Marilu Henner), who would like him for herself. Beautiful, vapid Vicki (Nicollette Sheridan) is having a fling with Fellowes, which is news to everyone, including stage manager Poppy Taylor (Julie Hagerty) and handyman-understudy Tim Allgood (Mark Linn-Baker). The whole cast is looking for Selsdon Mowbray (Denholm Elliott), who is usually napping or trying to sneak a drink. Hilarious hijinks and mayhem ensue as the show tours the country en route to Broadway and the players have to deal with their personal issues while performing. A strong ensemble cast does justice to this hysterical farce.
If you have ever participated in a group performance of any kind, you will recognize the characters in this film. There is not a dull moment in this very funny story. You will not be sorry that you watched it.

I really enjoyed this movie! I had been looking for it in movie rentals all over with no luck and finally decided to purchase it from Overstock. I received it very quickly and love watching the talent of the big name actors, many who are no longer with us, and their gift of humor. I would definately recommend it to everyone!
This all star ensemble provide plenty of smiles. All of the actors (including Christopher Reeve and John Ritter) provide memorable performances. Brief moments of lingerie scenes aren't bad, even for the young viewers. Highly Recommend to ALL Light Hearted Comedy fans.
