* ''Ivansxtc'' doesn't paint a flattering picture of the movie industry, showing the egos, dirty politics, and drug abuse involved in a seedy production company.

WRONG! In Horrible Hollywood, the actors and actresses are brain-dead, spoiled, have a tendency towards fighting the law, like to engage in occasional sexual deviancy, and are [[HookersAndBlow addicted to various illegal substances and/or sex workers]]. Everyone fears [[WhiteDwarfStarlet growing old and losing their fame]], so plastic surgery and desperate attempts to seem young abound. The directors are [[PrimaDonnaDirector egomaniac control freaks]] who wear funny pants and throw [[HairTriggerTemper petty tantrums]] at the slightest provocation. The assistants are overworked, underpaid, and might be [[DeadpanSnarker snarky towards the talent]], but this won't stop them from ruthlessly trying to climb the ladder -- and in this depraved environment, climbing to the top tends to be a [[CastingCouch horizontal sort of activity]]. The fans are insane and you might gain some stalkers. The executives are fond of [[ExecutiveMeddling excessive meddling]] and/or are just plain [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt]], and have people fired on the spot for being insufficiently sycophantic. [[WritersSuck Writers are second-class citizens]] and {{Butt Monkey}}s. Absolutely everyone -- even those not actually ''in'' the entertainment industry -- is a StepfordSmiler [[SuchAPhony Phony]] who may be all smiles and charm and obsequiousness to your face, but only because they secretly hate you and can't wait for you to turn your back so they can stick a knife into it. Everywhere you look, crippling insecurities and neuroses are constantly being masked with bombastic, preening arrogance and ego.

Essentially, it's the entertainment industry depicted as a {{Crapsack World}} populated solely by horrible {{Jerkass}}es.

%%* ''TheBadAndTheBeautiful''

to:

%%* ''TheBadAndTheBeautiful''* ''Film/TheBadAndTheBeautiful'' is one of the milder examinations of this trope.



%%* ''Film/{{Scream 3}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Hollywood Boulevard'' is a cheap, sleazy, slightly exaggerated and darkly funny look at the world of cheap, sleazy, 1970's exploitation film.
* ''Film/EdWood'', while buoyed by the performance of Creator/JohnnyDepp and direction of Creator/TimBurton , still deals with this in its sympathetic but unsparing examination of Creator/BelaLugosi at the end of his career.

Added DiffLines:

* The Music/{{Eagles}}[='=] "Hotel California" is said by the band to be about the hedonism and self-destruction of California and America in general, using a HellHotel as a metaphor for such.

* ''Film/AFaceInTheCrowd'' portrays the television industry much this way, at least the part revolving around Lonesome Rhodes, though the industry at the time was based in New York.

* Pretty much the entire point of ''Film/MapsToTheStars.'' Delusional, past-their-prime actresses? Spoiled-rotten child stars? Smiling, sanctimonious agents? Having to play nice with a rival actress who just stole the role of a lifetime from underneath you? Check, check, check, and oh HELL yes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBarefootContessa'' depicts the movie business as full of cynical {{Jerkass}}es, with the occasional KnightInSourArmor around to make them look even worse by comparison. Titular character Maria Vargas has great success but doesn't enjoy it, writing everything off as phony.
