Negligible comedy is an exaggeration of a true story about the FBI, mobsters, and an eager beaver filmmaker. Set in 1985, undercover agent Joe Devine (Baldwin) is bent on ensnaring minor mobster Tommy Sanz (Shalhoub) who's taking bribes to keep teamsters in line on film shoots. So Joe poses as a producer and gets a script and director in one package with nebbish Steven Schats (Broderick), who doesn't know the whole thing is a hoax. The fantasy begins to take over as the production rolls along. Joan Cusack has an unbilled cameo as a movie exec. Too-crowded story collapses under the weight after a promising set-up.

The FBI agent Joe Devine has been assigned on a case to take down the mob boss John Gotti. To do so, he fakes himself to be a movie producer. So he acts as if he’s making a movie. He hires a director and finds a script. What the movie director, Steven Schats, doesn’t know is that the whole thing is a scam to capture a bad guy and that the movie isn’t real. Everything starts following through. Everyone believes the whole scam. That doesn’t last long because soon Joe and his pals are starting to enjoy their fake roles a little too much. Will their scam work and will they capture the mobster? Or will their scam fail because they are having too much fun?
