5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, Yet I am Certainly Convinced, May 30, 2007
This review is from: Windy City Heat (DVD)
Simply stunning that a film like this could exist. Simply stunning that a character like Perry exists. As mind-boggling as it is hilarious.

The real movie does not exist, yet in his commentary (done two years later), Perry talks about 'getting the role' genuinely as if it was all for real. Though he does also make reference to it being like a reality show, he still thinks most of the situations were for real (BTW, you have to check out Burt Ward's appearance in the commentary).

At least I don't have to feel bad for Perry about what they did to him. Hell, they gave him a wonderful ride. In an extra, we see him watch the film with Mole and Barris (this film, not the 'real' one), and he has a glimmer in his eye every time he his honored (i.e. 'getting the role' and being given an award by the 'President of Show Business'--in fact, he gets choked up seeing the 'President's' award in the commentary).

Knowing him so well for so long, I believe Don and 'Mole' knew what they could get away with without Perry either catching on or being crushed in the end. Which is apparantly ANYTHING.

He does seem to get a few things ('Roman Polanski,' Charlton Heston being fake, some of the pranks they played on him), but his thought to this day is that it was overall mostly genuine.

I am just glad to see that at the end of the commentary he feels his dreams were fulfilled. And Perry, if you are reading this: they were, my friend, they were...
