Another one of those intertwining story-lines. An actor under house arrest, a reality show and reality itself are the lines in play here. The twist is that Ryan Reynolds, Melissa McCarthy, and Hope Davis play the main characters in all the parts. Thankfully Mr. Reynolds does not attempt to be funny. So the film is interesting in bits and boring in pieces. Reminded me of a milder version of Mulholland Dr.
