The Player

1992 Rated R 2hr 3m

Director Robert Altman's wickedly funny masterpiece about a slick Hollywood studio executive named Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) -- a hotshot whose life is falling apart -- is packed with irreverence and myriad star cameos (including appearances from Steve Allen, Cher, John Cusack, Peter Falk and Jeff Goldblum). A rival wants his job, and he's facing a murder rap. But will Griffin face the music or turn his liabilities into assets?
