Wonderful. This is not a quick hit, bad aftertaste froth - rather it is a rich, complex broth which steams slowly into your senses and leaves you with a warm, lasting glow.

Michael Douglas stars as Grady Tripp, a blocked author struggling to complete the follow-up to his best-selling debut novel. Amidst this career crisis he’s got his boss (Frances McDormand) pregnant, is fending off the amorous attentions of a student (Katie Holmes), the professional attentions of his agent (Robert Downey Jr) and is trying to track down a jacket once owned by Marilyn Monroe with the help of a precociously-talented student (Tobey Maguire).
