Storyline

"Eyeball Eddie" is the story of the stormy relationship between a prosthetic glass eye and the insecure boy stuck behind it. What follows is a dark comedy about the price of popularity. In the world of high-school wrestling, there is only the strong and the weak - and EDDIE MALICK may be the weakest you've ever seen. Shy, scrawny, and perpetually body-slammed, Eddie seems as fragile and pathetic as his own morbid glass eye. But when that eye accidently pops out during a match, Eddie seizes the moment, pins his horrified opponent to the mat - and suddenly realizes that the perfect strategy for victory sits in his socket. Of course, as Eddie continues to exploit this advantage, word of his victories spreads through the school - and Eddie becomes a freakish sensation. The bleachers fill with fans eager to see another Eyeball Eddie gross-out show - and while this sudden celebrity status has long been his dream, Eddie begins to worry...is my eyeball becoming more popular than I am?

FUNNY!
28 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great! It was cute, creative, and just plain fun to watch. The movie is a short, but it has a great cast. Appearances by Lex Luther, Harv from Critters, and starring the nerdy kid from Freaks and Geeks. Plus it was all done on DV and it looks amazing! I highly recommend anyone watching this movie if they can get their hands on it. I saw it at a film festival at USC and I was completely inspired. I got to watch it with my parents. My mom was kind of grossed out, but my dad and I laughed the entire time! Sure wish my wrestling team had the advantage that Eddie's high school had. They movie was great, no doubt about it. Definitely a 10!
