If You're Talking to Me, Your Career Must Be in Trouble: Movies, Mayhem and Malice

Front Cover
Hyperion Press, Feb 8, 1995 - Performing Arts - 288 pages
6 Reviews
This self-proclaimed "mean-spirited turnip" has sent the denizens of Tinseltown reeling with such classics as "Sacred Cow" (about Barbra Streisand) and "The Dark Side of the Moon" (an avid appreciation of Melanie Griffith's endowments), not to mention "Mickey Rourke for a Day," in which our fearless author impersonates the well-known bad boy by smoking eighty-seven Marlboros within twenty-four hours and degrading women on the streets of New York.
