Storyline

Hollywood comedian/actor Pauly Shore loses everything: his house, nobody in Hollywood wants to represent him, he moves back home with his mom and is now parking cars at the Comedy Store. Then one night when he's up in his mom's loft, a dead famous comedian appears who tells Pauly to kill himself cause he'll go down as a comedic genius who died before his time. Pauly then fakes his own death, and the media goes crazy. Celebrities are talking about him on MTV and girls are fighting over him on Jerry Springer. It's everything that he wanted...his plan worked. A week or so later the LAPD is tipped off about his whereabouts and they break down the door of the seedy motel room that he's hiding out in and throw him in LA County's celebrity wing.

Thunderously steaming pile of woeful crap
4 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

How did this movie get made? At first I thought it was going to be a real documentary, with celebrities being told Pauly was dead and then commenting (obviously and hopefully maliciously) about what a worthless pile of crap he was.

But instead it was lumped together segments of Pauly jerking off, watching porn, talking to celebrities and running around Hollywood dressed like Muammar Ghaddafi. I guess it's probably a stretch to hope for some sense in any movie that claims to be produced, written, directed and starring Pauly Shore, but holy crap! It was complete and utter nonsense.

If this was meant to somehow reinvigorate his career he really stepped on his dick big time. I am officially stupider for having watched this waste of 82 minutes.
