Great Actress
wolfhell8824 March 2012
Warning: Spoilers
The wonderful Beth Broderick (who would forget her as the clever, smart and sexy Aunt Zelda in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch") plays Alyssa, a TV stars who's best times are over long ago. She now does commercials for her husband's air condition company.

After the accident of their daughter, Alyssa's husband (a fine performance by Chris Mulkey) tries to find his inner peace in Buddhism. Alyssa sees no other way than to kill her husband. He will not be the only one. The body count rises and so does Alyssa's career.

I just loved the weird sense of humor in this film (which director Robert Lee King also used in Psycho Beach Party) and the funny inside jokes.

Beth Broderick's performance as washed up TV star is really outstanding. She is not only a great actress, she also looks great in this film. She has two gorgeous funny nude scenes in "Bad Actress". Her beautiful face, pretty legs and that perfect body makes every 20-year old girl fade away.

If you liked the funny "Psycho Beach Party" (which is from the same director) and "Slap her she's French" (where he wrote the script) and you are a fan of Beth Broderick than this is the right film for you. Highly recommended!

A Killer Good Time
Lorraine Ruth Rosenberg29 August 2011
Warning: Spoilers
I've have been anticipating seeing this fill since I first found out about it's production. As soon as I saw the trailer I had high hopes for this film and waited anxiously for a New York showing and thankfully that day has come. This movie went above and beyond my expectations, especially for an independent film, but I expected that from director like Bob King, who is famous for the cult classic "Psycho Beach Party." This movie is filled with perfectly placed comedy throughout the entire movie, even while handling the subject of murder, eating disorders, revenge and promiscuity, along with the hilarity of watching a washed up soap star try to make it back onto the screen, only to appear in her husbands commercials for his appliance stores. The cast is absolutely fantastic, with the amazing Beth Broderick as the title star of Bad Actress, Alyssa Rampart-Pillage, and also Chris Mulkey who plays Bernie Pillage, the cool king of air conditioning and Alyssa's less than supportive husband. Although this movie isn't something you would watch with your young kids, I recommend it to anyone who loves a funny, but cynical comedy and those who are fans of Bob King's other works

A Criminally Hilarious Film
Kayleigh Bondor3 April 2011
Warning: Spoilers
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!
