It's 1972, and Karen O'Connor (Alison Lohman) is a young journalist hired to write a celebrity profile for a major magazine. The magazine has promised onetime comedy great Vince Collins (Colin Firth) a million dollars for his story, and O'Connor intends to make him work for it. In particular, she wants to uncover the events of one pivotal night 15 years before, when a young woman was found drowned in the bathtub of Collins' hotel room. Collins shared that room with Lanny Morris (Kevin Bacon), his comedy partner; the men were preparing for a 39-hour telethon to raise money to fight polio. When watching this highly derivative film noir by the admittedly hit-or-miss director Atom Egoyan, a single question arises again and again: Why? Why have the immense talents of Bacon and Firth, both of whom are excellent in this movie, been squandered on such a lackluster script? Why was Egoyan attracted to such a hackneyed and familiar story? And why did he cast the jejune Lohman as the female lead?
