David Shayne, played by John Cusack, is a playwright in 1920’s New York desperate to get his work shown. He is helped by Mafioso Nick Valenti who will finance the play if his girlfriend Olive with a glass shattering voice, gets a starring role. Valenti sends a gangster, Cheech to look after Olive, but Cheech starts to re-write the script. Also starring Tracy Ullman and Jim Broadbent, this film has many typical Allen scenes of intellectual and neurotic comedy.
