Storyline

Alyssa Rampart Pillage is a washed up TV queen whose career has been reduced to starring in commercials for her husband Bernie's appliance empire. When their tree hugging daughter Topanga dies in a tragic golf ball accident, Bernie goes off the spiritual deep end and tries to give away their fortune with disastrous results. But what starts off as tragedy quickly turns into career re-invention for Alyssa. And as the body counts rises, so does her star. Bad Actress is a guilty pleasure of a film that gleefully mocks the world of Hollywood and Fame, which reminds us that Justice has nothing on Celebrity. Written by Anonymous

A Criminally Hilarious Film
3 April 2011 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

An amazing film with an amazing cast! The movie brilliantly juggles three deaths, anorexia, an actress with a failed career, murder, inept police detectives, and the lives of an overly privileged family... and makes it funny. I generally become easily bored when watching films, yet (818) kept me laughing the entire time. The amount of humor was perfect so that the film was funny, yet none of the comedy felt forced or strained. Although it is definitely not a family movie as the language use is harsh, it is a great watch! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. It has been said that this movie takes comedy to a whole new level and I wholeheartedly agree. This movie isn't quite like any other and I am sure to see it again when it hits theaters. Great film!
