Tropes for the film:
- Classically Trained Extra: Bob lands a lucrative job on a soap opera. Despite the fame and wealth, he hates the role and recites Shakespeare in his dressing room.
- Horrible Hollywood: The movie satirizes the shallowness and dysfunction of the New York fashion and cinema scene.
- The Loins Sleep Tonight: Bob cannot perform after seducing a coveted "real blonde". After she humilates him, and he gets his revenge, he goes back to a fake blonde.
- Wag the Director: Bob refuses to re-sign his contract unless the producers kill off his co-star's, Kelly, character because she humiliated him for his failure to perform.
