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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
