"A darkly funny, flamboyantly colorful satire."- Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Martin Mirkheim is bound for greatness -- even if nobody else thinks so -- in this fast and sunny look at fame, fortune and the pursuit of the American Dream from executive producer Martin Scorsese.Griffin Dunne is Martin, a small-time guy with big-time schemes.Inspired by a late-night cable-TV philosopher (Dennis Hopper), Martin becomes so convinced that his destiny involves producing an overblown screen epic, he's oblivious to the fact that his life is falling apart around him.Still, hounded by the IRS, hassled by his wife (Rosanna Arquette) and harassed by hangers-on (Ethan Hawke), Martin pursues his dream, heading for Manhattan and hooking up with a wacky screenwriting receptionist (Illeana Douglas), a karaoke-crazed New York businessman (Christopher Walken) and a mod-squad, speed-rapping street king (John Turturro).
