"Mewes shows surprising depth sans his mentor, director Kevin Smith (who cameos)..." -- Grade: B
The hottest bartender in the Midwest, Owen Peadman (Jason Mewes, CLERKS I and II), heads out to a Hollywood bartending contest, confident that he'll win the cash prize. Disappointed when he loses to a hotshot local, Owen turns to his wacky uncle to help him get a job with a local tabloid, where Owen tries to win favor via a story on the hottest new star, Hayden Field (Brian Hallisay). In the process, however, Owen befriends Hayden's girlfriend, Lisa Mancini (Paris Hilton), and falls in love while enjoying the trappings of fame and fortune.
