Storyline

The story is inspired by a real-life fan who pursued Limp Bizkit's frontman Fred Durst many years ago, and the screenplay was written by Durst and Dave Bekerman. It follows Moose (played by John Travolta), who gets cheated out of meeting his favorite action hero, Hunter Dunbar (played by Devon Sawa). Moose then hunts down Dunbar to get the celebrity interaction he feels he deserves. Harmless at first, Moose's actions begin to take a dark turn. Against the advice of his friend Leah (Ana Golja), Moose begins to make frequent visits to his hero's private home. As the visits continue to escalate, Dunbar finds himself in increasing danger.

Actually not bad at all - Ignore the Critics
8 September 2019 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Ok, so the film itself is not going to win any oscars and its just above average for me but what is it with the doom and gloom merchants slating John Travolta just because his last few movies have been pretty dire - that does not mean he is still not a good actor. After many years of giving us great performances how is it possible to lose any acting ability unless you are mentally ill but sadly this is the usual mentality of trying to bring someone down when they are famous, I though that was just a British thing and the Americans usually do the opposite but it seems that attitude has transferred across the channel?

His performance in this was full of effort and pretty good to me and I have worked with Autistic and mentally ill folks and he does all the little things pretty much spot on - the riding of the scooter wobbling all over the place had me in stitches and his performance is what makes the movie shine above the less than average it would have been given if he had not been in it. In short John Travolta makes the movie rise above the mediocre bargain bin it would have been in without him.

Watch it; never listen to the critics, just use your own judgement and you might be surprised! Honest and above average 6/10 from me!
