Bullets over Broadway (1994)

This is an okay movie. An aspiring playwright (John Cusack) garners a deal on his recent play, but in exchange he has to hire a mob boss’s girlfriend (Jennifer Tilly), an inexperienced and uneducated actress who doesn’t like to practice and complains about her lines. Her bodyguard comes to the auditions and makes suggestions on the story. At first the writer is upset, but then he decides to implement some of the ideas. A famous actress (Dianne Wiest) is also performing in the play and he starts to have an affair with her, leading to public gossip which upsets his current girlfriend.

Dianne Wiest won an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. The film's revenue was less than the budget.
