Playwright Ivan Travalian's (Al Pacino) life contains far more drama than anything he'll ever put on stage. Fortunately, it also has more comedy. As he rewrites his Broadway play even through it's in mid-rehearsal, his fly-by-night wife (Tuesday Weld) seems to be leaving him - and their many children! As if this weren't enough, his agent (Alan King) has arranged backing for Ivan's play, but only if a Hollywood diva (Dyan Cannon) stars - and the role she really wants is as Ivan's leading lady. Nominated for a 1982 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical), Pacino is hilarious as the put-upon writer with a heart of gold in this thoroughly entertaining film.
