When one of them is cast in a Saturday Night Live-like program, anxiety and competitiveness threaten to destroy their cozy unity. Concerns about their “expiration dates” in the business coupled with the performers’ insecurities about their peripatetic lives threaten to overwhelm them, as the realities of their chosen profession are made crystal clear. 2016, USA, 92 minutes, rated R for language & drug use
