NOT ANOTHER CELEBRITY MOVIE | DVD REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

I was loathe to review this one, I pleaded with the other Salty Kernels to take it, I needed some of the younger guys to review it, they would probably appreciate it more than me and give it a more favourable review. I had not seen one of these “Not Another……” B-Grade stoner comedies of tragic proportions in years and lord help me, without oodles of bongs and takeaway pizza how was I to enjoy this? But while the film is what it is, I actually laughed out loud (lol’d if you will) at many scenes and the preposterousness of the plot turned into something semi enjoyable. NOT ANOTHER CELEBRITY MOVIE is out now on DVD, is rated MA15+ and runs for 95mins but, if you are a fan of the weed smoking, or just like this kind of humour, we have three copies up for grabs thanks to our friends at Anchor Bay Entertainment

REVIEW BY JASON KING

Not Another Celebrity Movie adds a unique twist to the spoof genre as the talented cast portrays the biggest cinematic icons there are: the celebrities themselves. Packed with a star-studded crew of celebrity look-alikes, this parody of Oceans 11 follows the misguided antics of Charlie Sheen as he tries to meet with Justin Bieber, whom he believes is his illegitimate son. When his attempts to reconnect are thwarted, Sheen engages the services of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Robert DeNiro, Tom Cruise and seven other celebrities to implement a plot to kidnap the pop sensation at an upcoming concert at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The resulting antics are, in a word, Winning!

The winner of this film is the cast, all celebrity lookalikes and a HUGE amount of lookalikes – we have faux Charlie Sheen, faux Donald Trump, faux George Clooney, faux Brad Pitt, faux Tom Cruise, faux Angelina Jolie, faux DeNiro, faux Ashton Kutcher, faux Gaga, faux JT, faux Usher, faux Paris Hilton, faux Kanye, faux Bieber, faux Kim Kardashian, faux Daniel Craig, faux Oprah and faux Jimmy Kimmel and while most of them are barely passable, some of them are incredibly realistic and I kept giggling at the shenanigans they all got up to. My two favourite characters are faux Angelina, half the time she can easily pass for Angelina. Nicole Lari-Joni plays her really well and she must get asked a lot of the time is she is the actual Angelina. Then fake Bieber, hilarious, played by Lesbian comedian Danielle Owens-Reid.

The way these characters pay themselves out and parody the shit out of themselves still has me giggling when I think about it. Jolie turning up for a meeting with about a dozen kids, walking down the street and trying to steal another child. Faux Tom Cruise just being a dick, Bieber being an actual lesbian, Gaga just being Gaga. I am really surprised Sheen did not actually play himself in this film, the guy was spot on but like all the wigs in the film, he sucked 🙂 I didn’t think faux Brad Pitt was right and faux Clooney looked way too old, probably more accurate to what Clooney should look like at his age.

A lot of the jokes fall flat on their ass and the film does strongly rely on the fact that it has lookalikes to make the film work, when some script improvements and genuine humour could have elevated this film, at least to Scary/ Epic/ Date/ Disaster Movie status.

The film is made for a small target audience, and while the majority of the world will hate the crap out of this, I can see teenage stoner males totally loving it. I can also pay credit to the jokes that work and the film deserves a minute amount of respect just for getting all these lookalikes into a film together.
