Guru Studiosa Special Effects Company provided additional character animation. Maguire make a suitably cute couple, and Mr. Short throws as much energy as he can muster as usual, a lot into the comic sidekick bit. Peters and Billy Connolly, as a full-of-himself director, do what they can. Only Andrea Martin, as Serena, Margo's put-upon gofer, manages to find or invent some real comedy.
