Editorial Reviews

When once-up-and-coming indie film starlet Halley Feiffer (The Squid and the Whale) loses her boyfriend (Michael Chernus, Men in Black 3), her agent and her career in one fell swoop she finally realizes that something in her life has got to change... she has to become WAY MORE FAMOUS! Armed with a stolen script and two pitchers of sangria, Halley enlists the help of her brother Ryan and his boyfriend to make her own movie, starring herself (of course) as herself, and any A-list celebrity she can land along the way. From seducing Karate Kid Ralph Macchio to kidnapping Hollywood's biggest name in comedy, Halley will stop at nothing to get her movie made even it means hurting the only people who truly care about her. Featuring cameos from Hollywood's biggest stars including MAMIE GUMMER (The Ward, Stop-Loss, ''Emily Owens, M.D.'', NATASHA LYONNE (American Pie, Blade: Trinity), RALPH MACCHIO (The Karate Kid, My Cousin Vinny, AUSTIN PENDLETON (A Beautiful Mind, Finding Nemo), VANESSA WILLIAMS (Eraser, Shaft, ''Desperate Housewives''), JESSE EISENBERG (The Social Network, Zombieland) and BEN STILLER (Zoolander, Tropic Thunder)

I couldn't even finish it, it was so annoying. Storyline sounded like it might have been good, but no. I don't recommend this to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did not like it...then liked it February 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A NYT film critic recently observed that there's just WAY TOO MANY independent films out there now! [This is one of them]. Used to be that was where anything really DARING was done. With big-studio films costing up to hundreds of millions of dollars, obviously they do not want to take a chance and flop [yet somehow, they still flop]. Now independent films rain down like a hailstorm and the critics cannot keep up with them all.

Hence it's very easy to overlook "He's Way More Famous Than You". Yes Halley Feiffer stars as a worst-possible version of herself. One wonders--is it true; is she REALLY that desperate to get noticed that she's willing to degrade herself like this? Is this funny, or pathetic....or is it serious?

There is a serious story at the bottom, and one that any fan of the arts knows all too well. It's a story about how many entertainers and artists have addictions and/or mood disorders. For me, one peak moment of the film involves Feiffer and her brother pitching their "concept" for a movie to a panel at Sundance Film Festival (or whatever it's called in the movie) which includes Jesse Eisenberg, played by Jesse Eisenberg. Awkward, stupid, hilarious, touching, all at the same time.

In the movie [unlike in real life for so many, like Phillip Seymour Hoffman recently] redemption is possible. So, it ends on a positive note. But don't be deceived by the caricatures; there is serious stuff at the heart of this small work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classic in the Making April 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Humor may not be for the faint of heart (kinda like Bridesmaids-extreme-type-comedy) but funny as all hell especially if you know anything about the movie industry! Crazy comedy that holds no punches, be prepared for a self-debasing laugh fest that doesn't take itself too seriously (and you shouldn't either). Destined to be a cult classic!
