Happy to be in the minority on this one.

It's silly and funny and full of the kind of bad acting that you'd expect in a do-it-yourself amateur film. Lots of fun.

In short, a batch of wannabe screen stars put together a movie, enlisting one of Hollywood's biggest stars, without his knowledge. The running gag is that the star is stealth-filmed again and again, with his "co-stars" stalking him mercilessly.

I liked it a lot, but it's nothing that I want to see over and over. Turn your deepest thought processes off, see it once, laugh, then put it back up for swap.

The comedic misadventures of a low budget filmmaker (Steve Martin) who attempts to make a Hollywood Sc-Fi Blockbuster (Chubby Rain) with a star (Eddie Murphy) who has no idea he's in it. Funny take on low budget filmmaking.
