Synopsis

Alex is a straight, talent-free, working-class Italian Catholic with a great idea for a movie and all the right Hollywood connections. Elliot is a cantankerous, gay, Jewish New Yorker who has all the talent and no one to pay him for it. When the two team up to write a script together for a top grossing Hollywood action hero, their goal becomes less about beating the deadline and more about wanting to beat each other into a bloody pulp as they try to find some common ground on issues of sex, violence, high fashion and artistic integrity.
