How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog (2000) - Details
As L.A's most, if not only, successful playwright, Peter McGowan (Kenneth Branagh) has hit a creative dry spell. After a string of box office flops, his new play is set to open, but the script isn't finished. McGowan decides to workshop the production, and in the process has to navigate a minefield of egos, feuding actors, and showbiz politics, ever cynical of the schmooze and cruise scene his producer insists on dragging him into. With his producer and cast insisting the ten-year-old character in the play doesn't ring true, he is challenged to develop a "real" child and finds himself blocked.
