|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Twenty-four hours in the life of a N. Y. newspaper and its harried editors, who are trying to manage their troubled private lives against the unyielding demands of a deadline (and a few small questions about ethics). Over-the-top, far-fetched, downright silly at times, but so adrenalized--barely stopping to take a breath--that it's fun to watch just the same. Many N. Y. journalists appear in cameo roles. Music by Randy Newman.
