[to Bruce about his manuscript]
As I told you before, people go to the movies to see winners. How am I going to be able to sell that? I'm trying to be helpful, Bruce, but you have to understand - it's okay to have a loser in plays. I love plays, but the public doesn't want to see a loser on the screen.

The plot's "set up" has promise but is developed in such a pedestrian manner that it never "takes off" and never surprises us the way we want it to. However, Dylan McDermott at one point descends a curving staircase, still damp from his shower, wearing nothing but a towel tied around his waist. Aside from his shirtless appearance a few years later in "Destiny Turns on the Radio," this is probably Dylan's best "beefcake" moment and, though brief, is definitely worth savoring.
