    Andy, Greg and Maggie are all extras on the set of a film being directed by Ben Stiller. Ben Stiller is in rare form throughout this episode - shameless self promotion, bragging about how much money his films have made, flaunting in regards to what Hollywood women he has had sexual contact with. The movie is meant to depict the Balkans conflict. As Andy attempts to win himself a speaking role by befriending Goran, the Croatian man whose story is being told, he is drawn into the controversy between Stiller and Goran as the picture proceeds. Ben Stiller terribly overacts in this episode, but I think that was the whole point.
