Studio mogul Joe Roth returns to his roots as a director with this romantic comedy co-written by Billy Crystal and starring Roth's longtime friend Julia Roberts. Crystal stars as Lee, a studio publicist desperately trying to keep several facts secret from reporters during a high-profile motion picture's press junket. Among the developments that Lee is trying to obscure from view: the film's eccentric director (Christopher Walken) has essentially hijacked the $87 million movie and isn't allowing anyone to view it. Also, the film's high-profile, real-life married co-stars Gwen Harrison (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Eddie Thomas (John Cusack) have acrimoniously split since filming (over Gwen's adulterous affair with Latin lover Hector (Hank Azaria). Lee has led the press to believe that reconciliation is imminent, when in fact Gwen hates Eddie more than ever. Lee's secret weapon in his campaign of misinformation is Gwen's long-abused sister Kiki (Julia Roberts), who works as the pampered star's personal assistant while secretly pining for Eddie, who might just notice Kiki now that she's lost 60 pounds. America's Sweethearts co-stars Alan Arkin, Seth Green, and Stanley Tucci.

Personally I thought this was a great movie and Julia Roberts is one of my favorite actresses. She didn't do as good of a job as she did in My Best Friend's wedding, but she still did well. America's Sweathearts is a great movie and I deffinately recomend it for ages 12 & up.

America's Sweethearts is about Lee (Billy Crystal) must put ex-on scren lovers Gwen Harrison(Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Eddie Thomas(John Cusack) back together for their upcoming movie. But Lee needs help, so he all up Gwen's sister and assistant Kiki Harrison (Julia Roberts). Kiki, who just lost 60 lbs., now falls in love with Eddie and gets tired of her sister. And Gwen's lover now wants Eddie out of the picture. Who will win? Will anyone win?
