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?

Unique, Quirky, Winning Film!
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

100's original entertainment. I wish this film went on for 3 or 4 times the length. It's funny and heartwarming. I borrowed this DVD from a friend who went to USC film school. I think the film was made there. I highly recommend that any film student see this film. I am a film student in Florida and I don't know how they made this with no budget and student fascilities. All of the camera angles were really fresh and the ACTING WAS AMAZING. The little boy who plays Eddie Eyeball was sen-freakin-sational!!
