Arthur and Maurice audition for a play.
Prior to watching this movie, I thought I would be watching a movie about a pair of con artists, because that's what I think of when I think of the word "impostor." However, the movie is actually about a pair of struggling actors.

Arthur and Maurice dance with the Sheik.
While I lost some interest in the ending and found myself losing track of all the characters that were introduced, I enjoyed the movie as a whole and enjoyed this comedy film starring Stanley Tucci and Oliver Platt.

Happy Franks (Steve Buscemi)
Instant Comments:
That was at least seven spoonfuls of sugar. And he practically scoops it out of his espresso cup.
Amusing first five minutes.

"You stole my death."
Hahaha. "Did you think that you were suppose to die?"
Hahahahaha. "But didn't you see that I was dying?"

Audition Director (uncredited) (Woody Allen)
"Please sir, I want some more."
Woody Allen!
Haha. They have to switch pencils. Even though its the same.

Sir Jeremy Burtom (center) (Alfred Molina) and
Burtom's Assistant (to Burtom's right) (Michael Emerson)
Haha! The pastry shop scene is hilarious.
It's Michael Emerson! (you see him after the Hamlet actor gets struck on the head and goes offstage) He's credited as Burtom's Assistant. He shows up later aside Burtom.

Lily 'Lil' (Lili Taylor) and Meistrich (Campbell Scott)
Haha! "Lily, will you dance with me at the ball tonight, I have something I want to say to you?" "Well I..." "Excellent!"
The dialogue in this movie is great.
Steve Buscemi!

Voltri, First Mate (Tony Shalhoub)
Hahahaha. "Touch me." (Both rooms)
"Impostor" called at the 1 hour 22 minute mark.

Haha, the cast transitions into the credits by dancing off the set.
