Aroview: Thoroughly affable comedy from Albert Brooks will not disappoint his fans, with his gift for dialogue and impeccable comic timing atoning for a screenplay that doesn't entirely satisfy its premise.
Brooks plays (surprise!) a successful but neurotic screenwriter who resorts to hiring a modern-day 'muse' (she of Greek mythology) to inspire his creativity after he falls out of Hollywood favour. Sharon Stone's high-maintenance 'inspiration' turns out to be a regular pain-in-the-neck, fuelling both the plot and Brooks' patented comedy of exasperation. Filled with 'Hollywood' in-jokes and cameos from the likes of James Cameron, Martin Scorsese and Rob Reiner, this will hit the spot for those who especially 'get it'. Music by Elton John.
