Four teenage kids from the tiny mining town of Gold Lick vandalize a nineteenth-century cemetery of Chinese laborers when one of them disturbs a demon who's been guarding the souls of 100 workers killed in a cave-in. Jeff, the surviving teen, goes in search of his hero, over-the-hill B-movie star, Bruce Campbell. Jeff kidnaps the actor and brings him to Gold Lick to save the town. Bruce thinks it's a birthday treat engineered by his agent, so he plays along, humoring the townsfolk and chatting up Jeff's unimpressed mom. Bodies pile up as the demon slashes. What will the sorry, boozy Bruce do when he realizes that Guan-Di, the demon, is for real? Written by
The movie references Bruce Campbell's fake-memoir novel 'Make Love (The Bruce Campbell Way)' published in 2005 several times. On the set of Cavealien 2, the actor Bruce sits down next to after the shoot is reading "The Complete Dummie's Guide to Acting", mentioned and pictured in 'Make love' on several occasions. In Jeff's room, there is a poster for the fictitious Bruce Campbell movie 'Death of the Dead'. This movie plays a prominent role in the plot of 'Make love'. The poster as shown in the movie was originally featured as an image in the book. See more »
When Jeff drives away at the beginning of the movie, you can hear tires squealing. Even though he is on dirt and you can even see the dirt being kicked up. See more »
You know, they go to all the trouble to kidnap somebody, I'd have kidnapped that Jake character from Evil Dead 2.
My money'd have been on that blacksmith from Army of Darkness. Now that's one stud.
I wish I could quit you.

When a small town in Oregon is attacked by a evil monster, who do you call? Bruce Campbell of course.
My Name is Bruce is a hilarious comedy directed by and starring the great Bruce Campbell. It's a creative low budget film that does so much with so little. The whole cast is enjoyable, it looks like they all had a fun time filming it, like a bunch of friends getting together and shooting a film. And Ted Raimi is awesome as always, playing several roles, it looks like they just put the camera on Ted and told him to do his thing, and man the Rhyme Throwah sure delivers.
There are a lot of laughs throughout, I was smiling the whole way through. It's filled with a bunch of inside jokes that all Bruce Campbell fans will appreciate it. But this isn't just for people that love Bruce. This is a movie for everyone that appreciates film-making, and most importantly films that aren't trying to make millions of dollars. My Name is Bruce knows what kind of movie it is and doesn't try to be anything else. It makes fun of itself a lot of times (and Bruce rips on himself so much throughout).
I saw this at the East Lansing Film Festival and the audience could not sit still. There were so many cheers and constant laughter throughout the film.
It's an entertaining and funny film. Seek it out, watch it, then spread the word.
