Gwen Harrison and Eddie Thomas (Catherine Zeta-Jones and John Cusack) are Hollywood's picturesque husband and wife.  The press is eager to see the couple's upcoming romance flick, especially amidst rumors that their marriage is on the rocks.

Studio execs are panic stricken by the news, worried that Thomas and Harrison's real-life drama could ruin their perceived big screen chemistry.  More troubling, the film's director is holding its final cut hostage, insistent that critics view the pic with the studio in tow.

America's Sweethearts earned $93 million internationally, nearly double its $46 million budget.
