5.0 out of 5 stars My Review of "My Life With Morrissey" September 15, 2003
Format:DVD
Talk about CAMP.
This movie made John Waters films look like something from DISNEY...
To say that it was "over-the-top" would be the understatement of the new millennium to say the least...
It started with a shot of the heroine, Jackie, sprawled out in her bedroom waking up to a new day with her many Morrissey posters, pins, pictures and assorted other memorabilia scattered about. She gets ready for work and kisses all of her Moz pics on the way out the door- and then comes back in and gives a hint of what is to come throughout the film buy lunging back into the frame and tonguing the posters with relish... the initial shock of the audience never really wore off as her downward spiral of obsession is graphically displayed in alarming detail. The characters in her office are equally violently over-acted: you could tell everyone had a riot filming this, holding absolutely NOTHING back.
Things REALLY got racey once she finally meets Moz (played by a Sweet and Tender Hooligan, Jose Maldonado, who kept his "cameo" part filmed last Summer a secret from EVERYONE- including his own Smiths/Morrissey tribute band- until word leaked out a few days before the first screening). She goes around the known Moz haunts around L.A. religiously until her odyssey leads her to a HOT DOG STAND where the Pope of Mope apparently was eating a tofu dog. She doesn't see him at first but she does see the meatless weenie and proceeds to felate it unaware that he is watching from afar- and to her amazement: appears and offers her a ride home.
From here the film goes REALLY psycho.... She is now convinced that she is engaged to him and the fantasies get even more bizarre, if that's possible, including vibrators, inflatable love dolls with Moz' face plastered on them, and slippery shower heads.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 Lesbian Schoolgirls can't be wrong!!! May 11, 2004
Format:DVD
I first heard about this film on a blog where people were going to Amazon to laugh at the hysterical reviews from irate Morrissey fans. Now, I know that goofing on Morrissey fans has always been a favorite pastime of the less introspective folks on planet earth, but this film really takes the cake. Seriously though, what is the problem here folks? This movie made me LAUGH(...)! Plus, as a bonus, it has the hottest braces-wearing catholic schoolgirl ever to wear a short plaid skirt in the history of movies! So what if she's a lesbian? This is a GOOD thing! I swear, the things you guys complain about!!! I know Morrissey was laughing about this film on his KROQ interview so if he doesn't care why should you? The way I see it, the film breaks this way: If you're uptight and can't take the film because you are such a devoted fan that you feel your whole life is being belittled, then WATCH THE DOC! There is a whole bonus documentary on crazy obsessed Morrissey fans as part of the DVD. They are just like the chick in the movie but REAL! Quite amusing as well. And if you can't deal with that then... well, you can have a bunch of friends over and have a swell drinking game by downing a big swill of beer every time someone says "morrissey" in the film! TRY IT! Seriously folks, if you can't have fun SOMEHOW with this goofy charmer of a comedy, you need to loosen up BIG TIME!!! PS: I read that director Andrew Overtoom patterned the film's look on mexican soap operas and old John Waters films. Genius!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, low-budget entertainment December 7, 2005
Format:DVD
This isn't a movie for Morrissey fans. They have an actor play Morrissey and they probably didn't want to spring for the cash to add actual Morrissey songs to the soundtrack. It isn't even really about Morrissey, except that Morrissey is the object of the main character's obsession. She doesn't seem to know much about him, including his first name. She refers to him as 'Morrissey from the Smiths.' ("I'm getting married to a famous rock-star." "Who?" "Oh, a certain guy named... MORRISSEY! You know, from the SMITHS!") Nor she does accept that he's gay and she violently rebukes anyone who suggests that he might be.

The movie is very absurdist dark comedy. The acting is very over-the-top, almost like Saturday Night Live, and its obvious they're having a ton of fun on the set. The storyline is weak and the characterization is two-dimensional, but it all fits into the movie's absurdity. It follows the Morrissey-obsessed young lady through her descent into madness as she goes from stalking the city for Morrissey to acting out her marriage to him to making love to a blow-up doll with Morrissey's face taped on. There are many long scenes in which she's tonguing Morrissey posters on the wall, arguing with her blow-up doll, or shouting his name in personal ecstasy. The movie switches between her personal life, stalking Morrissey at night (at one point she runs into a tough gang of marker-sniffing schoolgirls) to her work-life where her bosses pile jobs on her and the 'popular' female colleagues make fun of her, partly over her love for the company's free bagels.

Very entertaining if you're into this sort of thing. You don't have to like Morrissey to enjoy it, you just need a tolerance for extreme weirdness and a good sense of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ya'll are nuts, watch this movie!!! November 22, 2003
Format:DVD
Yo this film is sooo bizarre and frigging witty and downright hysterical. It is so coool. I was shocked to see the crappy reviews. Moz fans with senses of humor will pee themselves, but you neednt know anything about or care about Morrissey to love this film. Miss it at your own peril! Destined to be a cult classic.
