Good satire of Hollywood's obsession with looks.
7 February 2007 | by (Fort Smith AR) – See all my reviews

This 34 minute film centers on Andy Shrub an average looking guy who is trying to make it as an actor in Hollywood. Due to his looks the best Andy can accomplish are supporting roles as the side kick to the lead. Then one day Andy has a freak accident. Andy looks the same to anyone he sees in person, but whenever he's photographed or caught on film he looks exactly like John Stamos. This opens up several doors for Andy but infuriates the real John Stamos. For only 34 minutes this film says a lot about Hollywood's obsession with looks and it's inability to relate to the average joe. Most people do not have Hollywood style looks and are often cast to the side in favor of people viewed as more attractive. This happens a lot in relationships but also in areas like employment (how many businesses hire gorgeous women and handsome men for customer service positions regardless of their qualifications). This movie shows how one man is virtually ignored because he is too average until he develops the ability to look good on camera. I've also got to give credit to John Stamos for being able to laugh at himself by doing a hilarious send up of his celebrity persona. Only a few any actors can do a good job at comedy and parody and even fewer can pull off self-parody. John Stamos does a good job at that because he feels comfortable laughing at and spoofing himself.
