Watch: Hollywood North 2003 123movies, Full Movie Online – Former lawyer Bobby Myers recounts his first foray in the Canadian movie business circa 1979, when the then burgeoning Canadian movie industry was going through some growing pains. He wanted his first project as producer to be told by Canadians about issues close to the Canadian heart. As such, he acquired the rights to Lantern Moon, a beloved Canadian novel written by Lindsay May Marshall. He quickly realized that producing a movie in Canada, especially in acquiring financing, required much compromise, most specifically casting a big name Hollywood star in the leading role. The star he signs, Michael Baytes, comes with much baggage. Those compromises lead to many problems between the Canadian vision and the want by some to make the movie more “American”, especially by ultra-patriotic and paranoid Baytes. Through it all, filmmaker Sandy Ryan films it all, good and bad, for a “making of” documentary. But Sandy has her own agenda as she concurrently films her own lower budget movie called “Human Voices”..
Plot: The making of a serious, Canadian art house film descends into Hollywood farce when its producer is forced to compromise his vision to accommodate his drug-addled star, his leading lady and his venal backers.

meta but not funny
It’s 1979. Newbie Toronto movie producer Bobby Myers (Matthew Modine) options a Canadian book hoping to make a Canadian movie based in Toronto. He’s told to get an American movie star lead and heads off to Hollywood. It’s Hollyweird and he’s forced to compromise at every turn.

This is a movie about 70’s Hollywood and the inferior complex in Toronto. This is a moment in time as the film industry morphs into something different in the 80’s. This is trying to be a satire. The problem is that it’s not actually funny. It’s a little tiresome. The mockumentary isn’t actually interesting. Modine is a functional movie lead. In a way, he’s the American lead in a movie about Canadian film industry. It’s meta but it’s not funny and therefore it’s not compelling. For a comedy, there are few comedians here. At best, there are a couple of comedic actors. It’s all rather flat.

Pretty darn bad
Ouch! This one was a bit painful to sit through. It has a cute and amusing premise, but it all goes to hell from there. Matthew Modine is almost always pedestrian and annoying, and he does not disappoint in this one. Deborah Kara Unger and John Neville turned in surprisingly decent performances. Alan Bates and Jennifer Tilly, among others, played it way over the top. I know that’s the way the parts were written, and it’s hard to blame actors, when the script and director have them do such schlock. If you’re going to have outrageous characters, that’s OK, but you gotta have good material to make it work. It didn’t here. Run away screaming from this movie if at all possible.
