What Just Happened

Rated R 107 minutes 2008

Robert De Niro plays a harried, hounded, hassled A-list movie producer with seemingly endless demands on his time by a pack of unreasonable people — everyone from ex-wives to temperamental directors to nervous agents to a scalp-hunting studio chief — in a funny, lightweight, inside-Hollywood yarn written by veteran producer Art Linson (Into the Wild) and directed by Barry Levinson (Wag the Dog). Among the hectic cast are Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, Catherine Keener, Robin Wright Penn, John Turturro, and Stanley Tucci, all overheated. It’s cruel and wonderful fun to watch De Niro’s Ben melt before our eyes. Even in the overcrowded cynical movie-movie category, this is a keeper (107 min.).
