Plot – Celeste Thalberg is the star of the long-running soap opera “Even the Sun Sets”. Now that her first wrinkles are beginning to appear, the writers try to come up with changes to her role. One of them, in love with a buxom co-star who wants to undermine Celeste, finds an unemployed actor who also starred in the same soap opera and is also Celestes's former partner. The purpose is, needless to say, to damage the star of the show. From here on begins a carousel of intrigue and twists in pure soap style. The intent of the movie is to brilliantly and fiercely criticize the world of soap operas by using its own conventions in a comic way. The gags don't always hit home, but at least everything is very well served by the exceptional cast.
All actors – Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Robert Downey Jr., Cathy Moriarty, Elisabeth Shue, Whoopi Goldberg, Teri Hatcher, Garry Marshall, Kathy Najimy, Arne Nannestad, Paul Johansson, Sheila Kelley
