An enjoyable movie that's: obscure & under-rated; a future comedy classic; most of all oh so funny
This movie is not well known. That's a shame because it deserves better. Bowfinger the movie is really funny, but you probably need to watch it 2-to-3 times to fully appreciate how funny it is. Overall, Steve Martin's humor takes some getting used to, but it doesn't take long. Steve Martin wrote this movie, and plays the title character Bobby Bowfinger, so his humor abounds. It's not the sort of intellectual comedy that came from the British Monty Python group back in the 1960s. But you kinda-sorta need to be on his wavelength to fully appreciate Steve Martin's comic genius (he probably winces every time he hears those two words used with his name). Add to that the comic genius of Eddie Murphy (as brothers Kit and Jiff Ramsey) and you have a double-dose of comedic genius here. The director and rest of the cast provide the needed support to ensure that Martin and Murphy make us laugh. There are some terrific actors and actresses here who help make this movie the obscure gem it really is. If nothing else, watch this movie just to see how Bowfinger's dog almost steals the movie in the parking garage scene. If I were to create a list of the 50 All-Time Funniest Movie Scenes, that parking-garage scene would be near the top. To be honest, some of the other scenes in Bowfinger might even make that Top 50 List. Another funny scene is where Jiff Ramsey has to walk across a busy freeway, and afterward he screams how he's lucky to be alive and that he hopes he never has to ever do anything that dangerous ever again. Bowfinger tells Jiff that all those fast-moving vehicles were all being driven by stunt drivers (right, sure they were) and that many of them radioed in to say that Jiff's acting was fantastic. Then Bowfinger tells Jiff "do it one more time, OK?" Please don't over-think buying this DVD. Just buy it, watch it, and then watch it again. After that, eight-to-five says you'll tell friends about this obscure movie. Just don't spoil it by telling them details about the parking garage scene. Let them find that comedic gem for themselves, along with all the other funny stuff. Thanks for reading my review.

A movie about a movie...
Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy star in an exciting tale of how a movie called "Chubby Rain" is made. Martin is a very low budget film producer who decides he needs to land the hottest actor in Hollywood for the lead role in his latest movie. The twist is that he isn't going to tell Mr. Hot that he is in the movie. The characters are interesting and varied, but the storyline is somewhat thin and far-fetched. Eddie Murphy does a great job playing tow seperate roles. Worth checking out!
Very funny story and great personalities.
Very funny movie. I loved it!!!

Steve Martin has done it again!!!!!
one of the funniest movies i've ever seen!! the idea for the script was just brilliant, and very original. Eddie Murphey is doing such a wonderful job playing two roles, the whole cast is just hilarious-i laughed so hard, i cried. hightly recommended!!!
This film hits home for me since I am an amateur filmmaker. The cast is outrageously funny, and Steve Martin is in his element. Eddie Murphy also does a great job of playing two VERY different characters in the same film (brothers, but still very different). Some parts had me scratching my head, but it all made sense in the end. I would reccommend it to anybody looking for a good laugh. Two thumbs up!
