Plot Synopsis

Jon Lovitz stars as the voice of Jay Sherman, a balding, overweight film critic who thinks every movie he sees "Stinks!" Showing clips that parody real-life movies on his show within a show, Jay constantly butts heads with his wealthy, incompetent boss Duke Phillips and his cynical, chain-smoking make-up artist Doris.
