Martin Brest's student film - very funny
29 June 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is Martin Brest's student film from NYU and it stars Danny DeVito as an aspiring photographer who plots to blow-up the Statue of Liberty so he can take an award winning picture of it. This film is extremely funny - if you get the chance to see it I highly recommend it. (B&W, 15 minutes)
