Movie Info

In essentially a two-man tour-de-force that parodies the better-known Dinner with Andre by Louis Malle, My Breakfast with Blassie features the late Andy Kaufman (he died from lung cancer soon after this film was released) and Freddie Blassie as two egocentric wrestlers -- roles they played in real life.

Audience Reviews for My Breakfast with Blassie

Andy Kaufman and veteran wrestler Fred Blassie have breakfast at Sambo's, encountering a few belligerent fans in the process who -- in typical Kaufman style -- turn out to be part of the joke.

Blassie gets most of the best lines ("That's another one we're gonna have to feed on welfare"), and his anecdotes and gruff wit are this low-budget video's chief virtues.
