Summary, etc.: Sidney Young is a gate-crashing British journalist who loves exposing the shallowness of the celebrity world, yet desperately wants to join it. Accepting an offer to write for renowned magazine editor Clayton Harding, Sidney finally gets to rub elbows with A-list celebrities, only to rub them in the wrong way. His fellow writer, Alison, is powerless to stop Sidney when he sets his lustful sites on beautiful starlet Sophie. When Sophie's publicist makes him a tempting offer, Sidney will either conquer the Big Apple or suffer the biggest humiliation of his life.
