Average Joe Obsessed With Fame - Bullseye!
11 January 2018 | by aluashaSee all my reviews

This movie is wild and relatable because it directly pokes fun at our modern-day culture's obsession with being famous. The lead character, Bob, is a lovable, wide-eyed average Joe who will do almost ANYTHING to be famous. His antics land him in a mental institution where he meets a patient who thinks he's James Bond. The Bond guy, who is constantly high on psychiatric drugs, tells Bob if he helps him escape, he can make him famous by capturing Osama Bin Laden, who of course, is already dead. With the help of 2 other patients (a Dr. Phil wannabe and a angry compulsive eater), they all successfully escape. Then the film surprises - - because it's not only funny (the scene where they visit a gun store is classic comedy), but it also turns heart-warming. The film is not perfect and you have to buy into the premise that there's a huge government cover-up. And the film is too short. But in spite of being low budget with an unknown cast (I did recognize the "Office Space" guy), it has good acting and an interesting story. This alone makes Crazy Famous a film definitely worth watching.
