Summary
Low-rent Broadway producer Max and his high-strung accountant Leo discover that with the help of a few gullible investors they can make more money on a flop than on a hit. So armed with the worst show ever written and an equally horrific cast, this double-dealing duo is banking on disaster. But when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise smash hit, they find themselves in the middle of a Broadway blitzkrieg!
