Movie Info

A socially awkward Hollywood impersonator is forced to find a new line of work when his successful stint as a telephone sex operator goes belly-up after the cops bust his boss for fraudulent practices. Ralph Eaton (Ross Buchanan) couldn't be more of a loser if he tried -- overweight and with a mean stutter, the only thing that he's got going for him is his uncanny talent to perfectly mimic celebrity voices. Strangely enough, it's the one thing that stops his speech impediment and ends up being his claim to fame as he works some local phone sex lines as his favorite Hollywood heroes, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Al Pacino. When the company is shut down for illegally selling customers' credit card numbers, Ralph is thrown to the street and forced to find another way to find fame and glory in the hallowed halls of Tinsel Town. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
