Editorial Reviews

It's a crime what Jimmy Alto will do to get a break. Oscar® winner Joe Pesci (1991, Best Supporting Actor, GOODFELLAS) and Christian Slater are at their finest in this wildly funny look at Hollywood from acclaimed director Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN, BUGSY). Struggling actor Jimmy Alto (Pesci) can’t get arrested. But the criminals that terrorize his neighborhood are making a killing. So Jimmy makes a bold career move. With the help of his loyal but spaced-out best friend (Slater), Jimmy transforms himself into “Jericho,” leader of a mock-vigilante group that videotapes criminals and then turns them over to the police. It’s the role of a lifetime, but when Jimmy gets caught in a crossfire between the cops and the crooks, it looks like it could be his last.

Customer Reviews

Did someone lose a bet?
Joshua Likens
The most valuable aspect here, is the relaxing, simplistic at times, somewhat Forrest Gump-like vision of the world, by the character played by Joe Pesci.
Pork Chop
Instead, the story has Jimmy and his dim-witted friend William (Chris Slater, miscast) becoming a two-man vigilante squad.

This movie was awesome. I loved it. I saw it at around one o' clock this morning and I'm buying it off of Amazon now. It was creative and clever with a Tarantino-type of nonsensical flow. The way everyone talked...it was great. The jokes were funny and the people were real in their own weird way. The characters were all unique and lovable and it was nice how amiable most of the people were. No one really got mad at each other. Anyway, if you haven't seen this movie, you should, and if you have, you should see it again. It's awesome.

Joe Pesci plays Jimmy Alto, an Average Joe from New Jersey who came to Hollywood to become a star. But Golden Age Hollywood is no more. Instead of glamour, Jimmy found a seedy town. Instead of fame, he's become one of thousands of unemployed actors.
It's an old story, but enjoyable to anyone who's shared Jimmy's dream. Probably less so for anyone who doesn't much care about "behind the scenes" Hollywood.
Then Jimmy Alto (aka Jimmy Hollywood to his buddies back in New Jersey) captures the thief who stole his car radio and dumps him off at police hq -- anonymously. When this inadvertantly makes him a vigalante celebrity, he decides he's found his "role of a lifetime." He continues his vigalantism, upsetting police and criminals alike, while to him it's merely a "role," and the cheering citizens, his "audience."
A bit overlong, and it hits some very old observations on Hollywood past and present, but not a bad film. Spanish actress Victoria Abril is delightful as his girlfriend with dreams of becoming a "hairdresser to the stars."

6/04/05 Comcast Cable 's HBO Channel's repay of this movie was a true "due" for all the replays of bad movies that they rerun.."Jimmy Hollywood" starring Joe Pesci,Christian Slater and Victoria Arril had something few movies have "No anti-climax"..As he(Jooe Pesci) repeats his rehearsal lines before facing the hyped police outside the California Egyptian Theatre,who are looking forward with "press /media prompting" to confront "Jerico"of the SOS membership a/k/a Jimmy Alto(the actor),who never got the break of a Brando or Cagney.. vs attending to "crime in the streets" etc. he keeps repeating the Lines "What You Going to Kill Me, Everybody dies"... In this time before the confrontation due to portable TV, he sees "fans" like he would want for the 1st time .Fortunately his friends played by actor Christian Slater(who had to delay his fugitive run from the city to keep his appointment for the 17th of the month "MRI")leaves the California Egyptian theatre,and his girlfriend Lorraine (played by Victoria Avril) lets the police know that "the actor Jimmy Alto" gun contained only blank..Thus 150 police don't shot at him as he leaves the Egyptian theatre.The movie's ending is the "stuff that kept the movie industry surviving strongly for so long".

Format: VHS Tape
Joe Pesci stars in this movie as Jimmy Alto an unemployed actor living in L.A. who's originally from New Jersey. Jimmy spends his time like a lot of actors in L.A., auditioning for roles, sitting around watching movies, and sunbathing by a pool. Jimmy dreams of making it big. However, the Hollywood he dreamed of no longer exists. All the greats are gone and the famous locations of old are run down. One day after Jimmy has his car stereo stolen he enlists his mentally challenged friend (Christian Slater) to help find the thief and video tape the crook as he commits a crime. They do so and end up binding and gagging the crook and dropping him off at the police department. From there, the S.O.S. is born and Jimmy decides to take on the role as "Jeremiah" leader of the S.O.S.
Overall I enjoyed the movie. At times it moved rather slow. The pieces of Hollywood trivia strung throughout are amusing. In some ways, the film felt like a modern SUNSET BOULEVARD with two guys and a comic ending.

Format: Blu-ray
An aluminum siding salesman Jimmy Alto (Joe Pesci) moves to Hollywood to become an actor. He even rents an ad on a bench. He even comes close a few times to getting a part.

The one time he leaves his radio in his car it is misappropriated leaving a broken window in the process. Jimmy upset decides to film the perpetrator in the act. He enlists the help of his forgetful buddy William (Christian Slater). His successes with the operation and the 56 second spot on the news, makes him realize that this is "Acting". His friend signed a note to the police with the initials SOS, thus starting the invention of an organization called "Save Our Streets.

Every thing starts to snowball from here. The police thing they are up against another SLA. The people think it is another Charles Bronson. William does not think. Jimmy thinks he is acting. And Jimmy's on and off girl Lorraine (Victoria Abril) thinks he is for real ad does not know it.

What do you think?
