What Just Happened is a winningly sharp comedy about two nail-biting, back-stabbing, roller-coaster weeks in the world of a middle-aged Hollywood producer - as he tries to juggle an actual life with an outrageous series of crises in his day job. Ben (Robert De Niro) is already in over his head trying to balance the tug-of-war of having two ex-wives and two different families with his latest business venture - the boldly "visionary" movie Fiercely starring Sean Penn (Sean Penn) - when everything that can go wrong goes completely screwy.

  • Couldnt watch it through. Boring

  • I have tried to watch this twice and it just bored me to tears.....couldn't be bothered watching it to the end

  • We didn't watch it as we had already had it recently.

  • I think that advertising this film as a comedy has really handicapped it, because as a no-holds-barred expos? of the movie industry in Hollywood it's closer to a documentary than a comedy. De Niro's performance is brilliant, as is Michael Wincott's portrayal of a crazed English director (scarily reminiscent of Keith Richards and very impressive for a Canadian). If your idea of a comedy is The Hangover, this is not for you. But if you're able to appreciate incisive wit and searing sarcasm, you'll love this gem. I've given it 5 stars to get its average rating up, because too many people have panned it without really understanding its worth, and really does deserve to be seen by a more discerning audience.
