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?

Martin Starr is a Star! Great Movie...
19 September 2001 | by (Frankfort, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I really love this movie a lot. It's only 29 minutes but I wish it could have been longer. Martin Starr(Eddie Malick) and Melissa Hunter(Layla)are really great and will be stars in future movies. It's a simple story about a small little kid in wrestling and has only one eye! It's his passion to stay in wrestling and when it pops out the fun begins and starts winning matches. He is not about that but he wanted to be popular and only Layla understands him. A great little film AND IT'S JUST awesome! I REALLY HOPE TO SEE SHORT FILMS ON DVD soon. The people who brought you this movie are so nice and you will not be dissapointed in the film at all. A real GEM! A find that I will tell all my friends about and hopefully buy the DVD! BUY it! It's a must! Out of 4 stars I give it 4 stars plus! It's that good and if you like great movies you will want this for your collection!
