Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Real Deal

Vince Vasser, a Hollywood film producer, is sealing a very important deal at his Malibu estate. And there's a starlet ready to hop in the jacuzzi with him. Or so we think. It's actually his assistant Sammy Saxo (Brancato). We learn through a series of jumps in time that Saxo has been working for Vasser (Baldwin) for six years under humiliating conditions. Saxo has pulled together a deal without him and Vasser is now taking all the credit and money. Saxo's pal, Freddy has been a gopher taking similar abuse. Saxo is fired and now the pair is trying to still keep the million-dollar deal afloat while trying to cover their tracks since they've got Vasser, his wife (Everhart) and her tennis instructor (Mandylor) tied up.

This was a very difficult film to like in no small part because the actors advertised as being principals on the DVD box had barely any screen time, Madsen in particular. Brancato and Reitman are the main characters and aren't known well enough (now) to be given that credit, apparently. The film is also billed as a thriller, but it's filled with comedy. Whoever did the marketing should have been fired.
