Storyline

A suspicious hunchback is spying through a scope on the UCLA campus from a tower which he makes his home out of, when his eye catches a beautiful girl. He lustfully keeps his eye on her until he sees her being violently pushed away while trying to stop a guy from beating up her boyfriend. This makes the hunchback mad and he makes himself known by swinging from a rope Tarzan style onto the campus and attacks the man who pushed the girl away. The hunchback is later taken into custody by campus officials and is later examined by the campus professors, Cathy, the beautiful girl, and Alex, her boyfriend. While on a ride back to the campus, the hunchback escapes the police car and is being chased by Alex, Cathy, and one of the professors riding along with them, Dr. Webster. He leads the trio to his tower and shows them the whole place. Dr. Webster then feels that it's best for him to stay there and he, along with Cathy, asks Alex to stay with the hunchback. After a long argument, Alex ... Written by Anonymous

BMOC is a pretty funny movie. Katz is hysterical as the hunchback. Most of the rest of the cast acts as if they were performing in high school play, but the non-sequiter-spouting Katz makes up for their amateur night antics. Interestingly, this was directed by Jeremy Kagan, who does a lot of TV work (which this sometimes feels like). Kagan's newest movie, made by Paramount for Showtime, is "Bobbie's Girl," a modest heart-tugger about an orphaned boy moving in with his remaining relative, a child-fearing (and cancer-riddled) aunt played by Rachel Ward. Not bad of its kind.
