Joe Roth: American Sweethearts
A studio executive is desperate because an eccentric director refuses to show
the film that the studio paid a fortune to make and that features a famous
Hollywood couple who are going through divorce. The studio executive hires
a publicist to handle the event at which the director will finally unveil
the film to the press. The publicist has to deal with the couple, the vain
Gwen and the manic depressed Eddie and can only count on the help of Gwen's
sister, Kiki, as sweet and modest as her famous sister is arrogant and
hypocrite. Eddie tried to kill Gwen riding a motorcycle into the restaurant
where she was having dinner with her new boyfriend, a Spanish man. Eddie
has been cured in a clinic and is now reluctant to reopen to the world.
The publicist (Lee) convinces him and Kiki convinces Gwen. The publicist
is very happy when the reporters spot Eddie spying on his wife in the middle
of the night because it means additional publicity. Gwen uses Kiki to mediate
with Eddie, as if she wanted to get back together. Gwen doesn't know that
once Eddie, drunk, kissed Kiki and that Kiki still cherishes that moment.
The spanish lover shows up uninvited and hits Eddie in a fit of jealousy.
All of this is manipulated by Lee to maximise press coverage. A small detail
is that nobody has yet seen the director or the film.
Kiki finally gives herself to Eddie but Eddie still seems obsessed with his
ex wife. Kiki, disgusted by both, sends them to hell. Eddie, desperate,
climbs on the roof and threatens to jump, and Lee almost kills him while
trying to save him. The press, needless to say, goes nuts. Finally, the
director arrives with the film. But, instead of a film, the director has
made an embarrassing documentary on Gwen's betrayal of Eddie and of the
couple's eventual break-up. Gwen, furious, tries to salvage herself in front
of the press by announcing that she gets back with Eddie, but Eddie shocks
her by telling her and everybody else that he loves Kiki. Kiki clarifies with
Gwen in front of everybody (the three are on stage and the press behaves
like a crowd at theater).
Gwen, hipocrite, kisses Eddie, and the audience claps. But it is Gwen's
last desperate attempt at saving her reputation: Eddie chooses Kiki.
