Complete list. :-(
The con is on.
On the verge of bankruptcy and desperate for his big break, aspiring filmmaker Bobby Bowfinger concocts a crazy plan to make his ultimate dream movie. Rallying a ragtag team that includes a starry-eyed ingenue, a has-been diva and a film studio gofer, he sets out to shoot a blockbuster featuring the biggest star in Hollywood, Kit Ramsey -- only without letting Ramsey know he's in the picture.
I haven't seen this movie in ages and I am so glad I checked it out again. I was in hysterics on multiple occasions and it just made me laugh so much.
As Roger Ebert said, this is a comedy where everything works. And it does. Nothing is too silly, nothing is horribly contrived and there's no large plot hole left unanswered. It's an incredibly well made film and has the humour to match it.
Steve Martin is fantastic, as is Eddie Murphy who is side splittingly funny as both Kit Ramsay and his brother Jiff as is all the supporting cast, and of course Robert Downey JR in a kick-ass Buick and Terence motherfuckin' Stamp.
The jokes are hilarious,…
A clever, silly and sometimes biting take on the fringes of Hollywood and everyone around it that is only doing what they are doing 'until'. An outstanding cast hits more right notes than wrong, anchored by Eddie Murphy in a brilliant comedy performance that is sadly looking like his last hurrah. A few lulls are sustained by clever dialogue and a sudden plot twist that takes place at one of the more entertaining group lunches since Reservoir Dogs. It would be nice to see Martin and Murphy work together again but that ship may have sailed. Christine Baranski should win an award for facial expressions.
Definitely a ridiculous, unique, and entertaining satire of Hollywood. The comedic elements actually hold up plus Martin and Murphy deliver the performances you expect and hope for from them.
Never has the story of a man's slow decent into madness been so funny. This film isn't really that good to be honest. It's stupid, it's silly, it's completely over the top. But I love it.
Forget shit like Nutty Professor, Norbit and Jack and Jill, if you want to see an actor play two separate roles in an amusing film watch Eddie Murphy in this. The first character is his highly strung movie star Kit Ramsay. A great creation that probably points a few fingers at Murphy's past as well as his other famous friends in Hollywood and brilliantly played for laughs.
The idea of filming a movie with someone without them knowing that they're the main star (essentially…
A little clever movie about cleverly filming a movie... directed by Yoda and written by The Jerk, comes a pleasant and sometimes surprisingly accurate look at guerrilla filmmaking at it's funniest. Martin and Murphy kills it in their prime.
Recommended if you need a little inspiration to get up and shoot a movie...
(... I also thought that it was funny to see Heather Graham have a topless scene in the movie within the movie without actually showing her be topless in the movie... because when is Heather Graham not topless in a movie...lol jk)
Steve Martin is a very skilled writer. This is an absolutely brilliantly written film with a character arc for everyone, a believable one, personalities for each small character in the film, some even to a hilarious and silly extent.
Bowfinger shows that if you want to make a film, no matter how damn silly it might be, and fuck, Chubby Rain is a silly ass movie, go do it and follow your dream. This may have been Ed Wood's dream film.
The ending is one of the best things ever. It's hilarious and I just can't help but smile. The cast is brilliant, Murphy at top form, don't you miss that too?, Martin is hilarious, Terence Stamp is epic as usual, just everyone is hilarious.
As an aspiring filmmaker, Bowfinger is one of my favourite films. It really is comedic genius.
This discount Tropic Thunder lets Steve Martin and prime Eddie Murphy shine, and it's a good time.
Bowfinger offers bountiful laughs at the expense of ALL levels of Hollywood and filmmaking, from the delusional and aspiring to the disillusioned and entitled. At both times smartly pointed and hilariously ridiculous, it’s filled with colorful characters…specifically, Murphy shines, with each of his characters feeling unique and distinct. Loads of satirical fun.
In some ways, it's just another dumb (yet funny) comedy. In other ways, it's smarter than I'll probably ever realize.
I swear, and maybe it's just because I'm into film, that this is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, filled with both subtle humor (like Mindhead), and just plain laugh out loud moments.
Affable comedy that takes a gentle dig at the Hollywood machine. Succeeds with its light hearted approach, spot on comedic timing and impressive ensemble cast. Also probably the last movie where the prospect of Eddie Murphy playing a dual role was enticing.

Was this really the last truly good Eddie Murphy comedy? A funny, smart satire of Hollywood that finds him and Martin at the peak of their games.
I found this movie to be generally amusing enough, if not great, but then it loses points for the blatant sexism and racism. I mean, Heather Graham is charming, but her entire presence in the movie amounts to a one-note joke about her sleeping with everyone to get ahead.
It was neat to see John Cho in a very small role.
Pretty funny comedy starring Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy (right before each of them stopped making good movies). Martin works pretty sporadically these days, but watching Murphy, I really miss the guy. I wish he would come back and do stuff like this again.
Anyway, Bowfinger skewers Hollywood with a lot of clever gags and insider jokes. It plays a lot like Ed Wood at times as well, even containing a scene that is practically a direct lift of that film's ending. However, it's not terribly consistent and becomes sort of aimless in the middle with Martin's protagonist strangely ceasing to be developed any further. Subpar plotting meets high wit. Also, Heather Graham's character is pretty poorly written, which sticks out especially because of how big a role she has in the story.
Otherwise, it's a cute movie. Well-directed comedy that's I could easily see myself returning to on more than one occasion.
Fictional cults and sects on film, however thinly veiled.
Preferably no demonic takeovers, although it can't always be avoided.
