The Biggest Fan reminds me of Vanilla Ice's much maligned masterpiece, Cool As Ice. Both films are fabulously out of touch with reality, contain fun cameos from B-grade fan favourites and are based around dubiously talented male singers who use too much product in their hair. What more could you possibly ask for in a movie?! I'm not sure when I finished being appalled and started to really enjoy this film. I think it was probably when the awesome Pat Morita first appeared as Mr Lim or when I realised that the producers had somehow managed to get Michael Winslow and Leslie Easterbrook to virtually reprise their Police Academy roles. These cameos alone are worth the rental price!
The film really doesn't have a plot to speak of. Chris Trousdale becomes tired of life touring with Dream Street (Sharing a tour bus with Jessie McCartney would drive anyone to insanity) and then, under the influence of cough medicine, manages to escape from boy-band hell in an 18 wheeler. Chris crashes the truck and inexplicably walks into the home of his biggest fan, Debbie. Luckily for Chris, Debbie's front door is unlocked and she appears to be a very heavy sleeper because Debbie doesn't bat an eyelid when Chris climbs into bed with her. The rest of the film involves Chris experiencing life as a normal teenager
complete with a fabulously unconvincing Steve Urkel disguise at
I thought that Chris Trousdale was surprisingly competent in the main role. I guess he was only playing himself but it could have been a lot worse (See Mariah in Glitter for the worst singer/actor performance of all time). The actress who played Debbie has an annoying voice and a weird mouth but this just makes her more amusing.
This film has future cult favourite written all over it. Lovers of crappy movies will find much to enjoy in this feast of hilarity.
