The new Barry Levinson film What Just Happened? sports an interesting cast and a workable premise, but festival audiences haven't exactly warmed to it. Robert De Niro plays a film producer whose career is on the ropes, with John Turturro, Stanley Tucci, and Kristen Stewart filling out the cast. The movie covers two weeks in the producer's life as he tries to get a new film off the ground. Bruce Willis shows up as himself in the film, and this clip shows just how much fun Willis can have at his own expense. The setup is that De Niro wants Bruce to shave his beard for the role. If you're at work, it's probably not a good idea to have the speakers up very loud.
Though it's be-boppin' around the world at various
festivals, What Just Happened? will happen in the U.S. on October 3rd.
