Tim Robbins is Griffin Mills, a sleazy Hollywood executive who spends his days hearing film pitches and giving the writers hope, while usually shooting their ideas down. He has the perfect parking space, a nice office, a girlfriend who also works for the production company - his life is pretty flawless. That is, until he begins receiving threatening postcards, which are seemingly coming from a disgruntled writer. One day, Griffin, wanting to get to the bottom of the threats and get on with his life, does a little digging and tracks down the man he thinks is responsible for sending the threatening postcards. The man is a writer, David Kahane, whom he tracks down and tries to butter up by telling him that he wants to make the movie that David pitched him. Some words are shared, but the writer is inconsolable and during a shoving match, Griffin, in a fit of rage, murders David. The only problem is that the postcards keep coming the next day and it turns out Griffin killed the wrong man. Now, not only is he still dealing with the death threats, but now he's got the police on his tail, as he's the #1 suspect in the murder of David. Meanwhile, Griffin begins dating David's roommate/girlfriend (Scacchi), all the while battling to try and protect his job from the new hotshot executive in town, Larry Levy (Gallagher).
