Storyline

"Eyeball Eddie" is the story of the stormy relationship between a prosthetic glass eye and the insecure boy stuck behind it. What follows is a dark comedy about the price of popularity. In the world of high-school wrestling, there is only the strong and the weak - and EDDIE MALICK may be the weakest you've ever seen. Shy, scrawny, and perpetually body-slammed, Eddie seems as fragile and pathetic as his own morbid glass eye. But when that eye accidently pops out during a match, Eddie seizes the moment, pins his horrified opponent to the mat - and suddenly realizes that the perfect strategy for victory sits in his socket. Of course, as Eddie continues to exploit this advantage, word of his victories spreads through the school - and Eddie becomes a freakish sensation. The bleachers fill with fans eager to see another Eyeball Eddie gross-out show - and while this sudden celebrity status has long been his dream, Eddie begins to worry...is my eyeball becoming more popular than I am?

Excellent film about being yourself
1 June 2006 | by pjlopiSee all my reviews

This film captivated me from the first few minutes - and when it ended, I wished it could have been longer. The film's storyline had all the necessary components to a great plot - a classic tale about finding oneself and the courage needed to do so. In that regard, I guess most everyone can relate to this film in some way. It was a feel-good and yet believable comedy at times, and the "loser" ended up truly finding himself. But the storyline was only part of what made this film interesting. What made this great story into an excellent film was the choreography, intriguing angles and lighting, and great music to complement the scenes.
