Further proof of the decline of the spoof (hey, that rhymes)
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning
Charlie Sheen has decided that Justin Bieber is, in fact, his biological son, and so rounds up a group of celebrity pals, including Angelina Jolie, Robert De Niro, Donald Trump, Brad Pitt and George Clooney, to corner him at a gig in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Sheen must contend with his former squeeze Paris Hilton being on the arm of smooth crooner Usher among other things.
The excess of the 1980s provided a great time for the spoof genre, where the pomposity and overblown nature of everything led to a climate ripe for satire, where the likes of Pat Proft and Jerry Zucker could generate the fun out of anything. Somehow, the generations that followed never managed to match the quality of it, and Not Another Celebrity Movie is the latest (un)shining example of it. So confident did the distributors appear, that it has taken three years to arrive direct to DVD on these shores.
A plot less, incoherent shambles, looking so cheap and low budget your average student production could maybe look more convincing, this wouldn't be so bad if only it could compensate with an abundance of laughs, but, like everything else, they're not on the front pages. *
