Everybody's Famous! Reviews

Internet Reviews

With so many great documentaries and foreign films each year, why does the Academy so often come up with second-rate choices in these two categories?

Everybody's Famous! starts out as a triumphant commentary on what it takes to achieve celebrity and the wealth it promises. But as the film progresses, it becomes wildly tedious and wacky.

De Pauw has one of those soulful, comedically inclined faces that invites instant empathy, and the rest of the cast is likewise well chosen.

You have to like a movie that, in its rosy denouement, proclaims giddily, 'It's a great day for Flemish showbiz!'

The ideas are not pushed nearly as far or with as much success as they are in, for example, King Of Comedy, The Icicle Thief (the 1989 Italian comedy) or even Ed TV, for that matter.

Dominique Deruddere's film is at heart all soft and squishy.

Yes, I admit it, the film's corny, but there's nothing wrong with this can of sweet, imported niblets.

These themes have been handled with more depth on I Love Lucy and The Brady Bunch.

Duane Dudek

Deruddere muddles the film by not allowing much variation in mood.

Tom Sander
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The performances are ... flat, unfunny and uninvolving.

Perky but spineless.

Writer-director Deruddere pads his cynicism with sugar. The mixture doesn't work.

Who in the world is in charge of foreign film Oscar nominations? And what hints of greatness did they see in this artlessly benign little comedy?

A sweet and heartwarming story even as it celebrates and justifies the entire ridiculous phenomenon that Deruddere has been spoofing all along.

An amiable and generally entertaining, albeit small scale picture.

An entertaining enough oddity, goosed by the added interest of its report on the high level of acting talent from Belgium.

The movie ... was one of this year's Oscar nominees for best foreign film, leading one to wonder what films were passed over to make room for it.
