Eddie Adams would have been just another high-school drop-out had he not met the likes of adult film director Jack Horner. Horner transforms Eddie into Dirk Diggler, a rising-star actor with a special gift. Set in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the film is a tribute to the decor, style, culture, and social attitudes of the era. Starring: Luis Guzmán, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Rico Bueno, John C. Reilly, Don Cheadle, Heather Graham, William H. Macy, Mark Wahlberg, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Nicole Ari Parker.
