“Not Another Celebrity Movie” DVD (director: Emilio Ferrari)

Fun parody with star value (kind of...)

This low-brow comedy throws some really entertaining curves, even if the comedy itself falls a bit flat. Surely, the plot and story are secondary here, though, as Ferrari’s absurd and over-the-top collection of celebrity impersonators keeps this one pretty engrossing, especially as he parades out a virtually continuous array of them. In short, this is a fun and really 

Suffice to say, Charlie Sheen (alongside his many porn-star girlfriends) meets up with his “dealer”, Johnny Depp, and thus begins to plot a big “Oceans 11” style kidnapping of Justin Bieber. Along the way, Sheen (and cohorts including Brad Pitt and George Clooney) meet up with Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Donald Trump, Robert DeNiro, Usher, Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Daniel Craig, Ashton Kutcher, Oprah, and more. Sure, some of the impersonators are a wee bit “off”, but others are marvelously “spot-on”, making this one a real hoot.

Forget the silly dialogue, as you could do a lot worse with more “mainstream” comedies. “Not Another Celebrity Movie” is a fun and memorable film, and one worth seeking out if watching a full-length film of celebrity impersonators sounds like a good time. You may just be pleasantly surprised.
