Storyline

This film involves three interwoven stories with the only seeming connection being the delusions of the involved leads. In the first element of the film, a hot-tempered world tennis star loses endorsement contracts when the press outs him even though he claims the report is false. In the second, a talent-less woman struggles to make it in the world of fashion design or the music video business. In the last, an animal activist runs a dog-adoption agency and has an imaginary friend who appears in a St. Bernard suit. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Hilarious satire

Ah, the perils and pinnacles of fame, so deserving of ridicule...

Moritsugu's Fame Whore details three intersecting stories about the lives of those who strive to be the best in their respective perspectives, which sometimes equates to having hallucinations of a giant talking dog named Mr. Peepers, deluding oneself with mirages of celebritydom, even guilt-ridden homoerotic desires... All of which mesh together quite nicely in this minimalist indie flick.

There's really not much more to say, as the characters have been covered briefly in the plot synopsis and other reviews here; though, i'd like to put in a fair word for Peter Friedrich for his role as Jody George! Jody's violent-meathead-stereotypically-arrogant-jock role as a budding tennis superstar caused many outbursts of ill-controlled cachinnation for this viewer. With such classic lines as "Jody George is gonna f**k that pu**y!", or becoming confused over his ranking in the tennis world while dealing with obnoxious media hooligans... "yeah well, i'm number 2! i mean number 1! F.U.!". Who can resist laughing at such oafish buffoonery?!?

So, if you're looking for an amusing indictment on the superficiality of fame & celebrity, then give this a look.
