Editorial Reviews

Product Description

So many stars?so little sympathy! Leave it to legendary Hollywood "weasel" Pauly Shore to fake his own death and chronicle the hilarious reactions from dozens of A-list celebrities in this outrageous dark comedy that raises the eternal show business question: Is it better to be a dead genius or a living idiot?

Amazon.com

Pauly Shore, one-time MTV personality and faded comic star of Bio-Dome and Jury Duty, wrote and directed this satire about his own career decline and (fictional) attempt to revive Hollywood's interest by faking his suicide. The fun of this movie is in never being quite sure how much of the story is based on Shore's real-life status as a has-been, and how much is inspired by public assumptions about his near-disappearance from the entertainment scene. In any case, watching Shore's dubious run as a stand-up comedian and actor wind down has, in Shore's own telling, some very funny moments, including a scene in which cash-rich, prop comic Carrot Top buys the former Wiezel's house and another in which Shore tries to secure the services of a Heidi Fleiss escort for $84. Lots of celebrity cameos here (Shore obviously still has show-business friends), including Ben Stiller, Britney Spears, Bill Maher, Charlie Sheen, Tom Sizemore, and Ellen DeGeneres. --Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews

Stay dead,' turns out to be the most genuine reaction to this film.
Cosmoetica
Anyway, Shore gets a visit from the "Ghost of Sam Kinison" and Kinison tells him you'll be famous if you're dead.
Mike Bolts
It was so bad in every way, and not in a kitchy-b movie kind of way, just bad.

Pauly Shore is Alive and Well!

And not because I think P.M.S. is such a talented actor/comedian because, quite frankly, I think he sux. I'm not saying that to be mean or rude; I'm just not impressed with him -- at all! I question his talent as a stand-up comedian and as an actor.

But as a commentator / pseudo-documentarian, however....

Here, clearly, is Pauly Shore's absolute finest hour (at least until he pulls something else out of the hat at a later date). His faux "semi-autobiographical" film "PAULY SHORE IS DEAD" (aka "YOU'LL NEVER WIEZ IN THIS TOWN AGAIN") is such an indictment against the "Hollywood System" it ain't even funny -- even though Pauly presents it in a funny way.

He shows just how typical, hypocritical, backbiting and fickle the masters of the entertainment system and the arse-kissing entertainment media truly are -- how they can, at a whim, make or break a person's career in the industry, which, as Pauly shows, is committed mostly through typecasting and stereotyping.

Pauly's independently financed movie (of course! -- you think the H-Town execs would want to be compliant in their own asswhippin'?) shows the entertainment world's "two faces." Though he focuses on the "movie" & "music" industry, his expose could just as easily apply to professional sports. He uses the "celebrity wing" of a prison to show just how the pressures & politics of the industry can lead to your downfall.

This movie is very difficult to understand, as it contains many different deep aspects. Basically it is about this guy Pauly Shore, who many people used to think was funny, and about his personal struggle to feel loved, wanted, and redeemed. With basically no budget, Pauly set out with a hi-def digital camera and made a movie that had a funny idea about faking his own death. But really, the faking of his death is just an entertaining medium for some more serious and deep questions. Pauly shore has one scene where he is praying to God in the form of a famous comedian; and while people may think its funny because pauly is crying and kneeling down, he is quite serious and quite convincing as a dramatic actor. Pauly goes further by acknowleging that he really is somewhat of a wiesel, and that part of him will never go away. In the begining we get to see Pauly rubbing one out..... He could have left that out but hey! Its reality man. I loved how pauly showed his change in prison, and the idea of another inmate teaching him to act using classic standards such as shakespere. Of course, he probably did not change in this manner, but it is a brillant way of presenting his desire to act in a low-budget manner. Basically I love this movie and i feel anyone who wants to laugh at pauly should just go and try and make a touching movie with no-budget. I have felt just like pauly, when your all alone in the world when you used to be on top and you can't understand what you did wrong. Whenever i feel like that i feel very redeemed when i watch this movie. I used to idealize pauly shore when i was like 10, and watching how someone you used to look up to could be so sad just ten years later was a real mind-bender. Just give this movie a chance and keep this in mind.

i saw this film on the opening night here in sacramento. i thought it was great. mr. shore pokes fun at himself and the business. if you support his reinvention of himslef to be less like the son in-law and more like an adult, then you'll appreciate this movie. it's funny and has a message...and how can you not just love him?

I think Pauly Shore is much more talented then people give him credit for. It is not as easy at it seems to play the character he played in every single one of his films. But the problem is that he has played the same character in all the movies he made. Frankly I dont think he made this movie or started his new reality show to restart his career, I think he probably knows that he is a living joke, I feel he is just trying to give people a laugh and I'd say hes done that.

I'm not a Pauly Shore fan, have never wasted my time on any of his bombs, but something told me PAULY SHORE IS DEAD (2004) would be worth seeing. It turns out my guess was correct.

This self-lampooning comedy is packed with fun cameos. Contributing celebs include Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, Bill Maher, Pamela Anderson, Ellen DeGeneres, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Nicky and Paris Hilton, Clint Howard, Chris Rock, Ja Rule, Michael Madsen, Tom Sizemore, Jerry Springer, Britney Spears, Whoopi Goldberg, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller and the voice of Adam Sandler.

Since it's the story of a struggling has-been, an addiitional number of the formerly famous appear, including 'Screech' from Saved By the Bell, Heidi Fleiss, 'Downtown' Julie Brown, Carrot Top, the guy who played 'Mini Me' in the Austin Powers films, Tommy Chong, Sally Jesse Raphael, Montel Williams, Tommy Lee, Craig Kilborn, Corey Feldman, Andy Dïck and Kato Kaelin, who's now very bald in front.

Another has-been, Todd Bridges, has a significant supporting role. He and Pauly share a prison cell. Bridges gives acting advice and shares his religious beliefs. Note: the deleted scenes include an angry Gary Coleman (Todd's co-star on TV's Diff'rent Strokes) storming off rather than being lumped in with a crowd of losers.

The most unique celebrity here is back from the dead. Shore combines archive footage of Sam Kinison's silhouette with an excellent voice imitation. Sam materializes in an eerie mist to offer a despondent Pauly some advice. He explains that guys like himself and John Belushi are more famous now because they're dead.
