Description In one hour's time, Walter Weinermann must pitch his screenplay to a high-powered panel of big-shot producers. For Walter, it's not just a chance for work. It's his one chance for everlasting fame. And the chance to create a multi-million-dollar box office extravaganza. Very importantly, it's also the chance to get his girlfriend back and, even more importantly, the chance to take pot-shots against the world in the most unforgettable Oscar acceptance speech the world has ever seen.
