Just kind of dull and lifeless. Some cute stuff here and there but pretty drab for the most part.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Amiable but aimless comedy of college professor who becomes involved with a movie troupe as his historical novel is filmed. Ingratiating cast maintains some level of interest, with funny turns by Caine as a cocky leading man, and Hoskins as an eager-to-please screenwriter. But deep down inside, it's really shallow
