De Niro can be a sensational comic actor, though his deftly subtle performance here can't save this flimsy Hollywood satire. He plays a harried movie producer busily shuttling between ex-wives and kids, nagging studio execs and egotistical directors and stars (Bruce Willis in a nifty cameo as a heftier, bearded version of himself). Based on a memoir by real-life film producer Art Linson, What Just Happened is intent on skewering Hollywood for its vanities and pretensions. Come on, tell us something we don't already know.
