Benny Gopher leaves his home in the country to make it big in Hollywood. When he arrives in Tinsel Town he finds the only job open to him is to be a gopher to superstar Cary Ant. Benny joins Cary on the lot of "Sunshine Pictures - Hollywood's Brightest Studio!" There he meets Arnold Hamandegger, Charlie Chimplin, Jay Rhino, Gloria Swansong, Frankie Sinatrat and the rest of the Rat Pack, and other show business greats. While lost on the lot, Benny stumbles across the office of Louie B. Mole head of the studio. Benny pitches Louie an idea for a movie called "Sunshine Boulevard."

An exciting adventure for the whole Family to enjoy!
13 October 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Movie Critters' Big Picture is a must have. It's reminiscent of the old big time pictures with the lovable characters to boot! In animated puppets we meet Cary ANT, Gloria SWANsong, Arnold HAMenagger, and Jay RHINO. There are musical numbers featuring the RAT pack and Rosemary RACOONy. The main character Benny Gopher goes to Hollywood to pursue his dream of making a picture, what he finds is a lesson of telling the truth and working hard to reach your goals. Kids will love the fun loving characters, adults will love the laughs. This is one of those movies that can be appreciated on lots of levels. I'm glad I picked up a copy - I can always pop it in for the kids - they love it and it's good for them!
