Just Write ★★½ 1997 (PG-13)

Sweet and slight romantic comedy about making your dreams come true. Harold (Piven) is a Hollywood tour bus driver who works for his well-meaning but overbearing father (Rocco). He meets cute with rising star Amanda (Fenn), who is mistakenly lead to believe Harold is a screenwriter. And Amanda just happens to have a script that needs some work. They begin to fall in love but sooner or later the truth is bound to come out. Leads play well together and the supporting cast is fine, especially Williams as a hard-charging agent. 95m/C VHS, DVD .

Sams, Wallace Shawn, Costas Mandylor, Yeardley Smith, Holland Taylor; Cameos: Nancy McKeon, Ed McMahon; D: Andrew Gallerani; W: Stan Williamson; C: Michael Brown; M: Leland Bond.
