My Life With Morrissey

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.Read more ›
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.

So cheesy, and amazing. We couldn't stop watching it. Inspires me to follow through with making my own movies. Definitely can't take it seriously.Published 20 months ago by tvdane

Yeah, it's kind of over-the-top funny, especially in the way it portrays the character of a rabid Moz fan (we've all had to stand in line with them, and we've all safely watched... Read morePublished on December 17, 2005 by Alan Smithee
