Actor/writer/director Albert Brooks turns his satiric gaze on the film industry in this comedy about a screenwriter who has hit a rough patch. Steven Philips (played by Brooks) has enjoyed a celebrated career in Hollywood, but one day he has a meeting with his agent, who informs him his career is suddenly going nowhere. Steven quickly finds himself at the end of his rope and is unable to put a decent sentence on paper. Desperate, he hears that there's a bona fide muse in Hollywood, Sarah (played by Sharon Stone), who might be able to help with his problems. The writer contacts Sarah, hoping a good, stong dose of inspiration will get his career back on track. However, Sarah's late hours and endless demands don't do much to help Steven's relationship with his wife (Andie MacDowell). The Muse features an original musical score by Elton John, and cameos by several notable film figures, including Martin Scorsese, Rob Reiner, and James Cameron.~Mark Deming
Somehow I lost my copy of this movie and since Best Buy had it for such a reasonable price, it was easy to replace. Being on a boat, I rarely have internet therefore, I have an extensive DVD collection. This HAD to get back into my movie library. Note: be careful who you loan your movies to. Thank you Best Buy for making it so inexpensive to replace.
I would recommend this to a friend

This is one of those "feel good" comedies. After I saw it , I knew I wanted to own it for myself. Albert Brooks is hilarious! One of those movies I could watch again and again.
