Movie Info

Colin Fitz was a rock star, but his untimely demise put his career in the past tense a few years ago. On the anniversary of his death, Colin's widow decides to hire security guards to watch Colin's grave, in the hope of preventing a repeat of last year's ugly incident in which a group of ardent fans committed mass suicide near his final resting place. The widow approaches Mr. O'Day (William H. Macy), head of O'Day Security, who agrees to put two men on the job. Dim-witted Grady (Andy Fowle) and philosophical Paul (Matt McGrath) wind up on the case, spending most of the night drinking beer and swapping stories as they keep an eye on the various characters who come to pay their respects to Fitz, including a group of especially zealous Swedish fans. The film received awards at the Austin Film Festival and Houston's WorldFest and competed at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.

All Critics (2)

Macy as the grumpy security company head and the two mismatched misfits assigned to cemetery duty that he supervises - a reticent health nut and a macho beer guzzling junk food enthusiast - make for a trio radiating goof chemistry galore.

Audience Reviews for Colin Fitz Lives!

Very slow, tons of pointless dialogue, and a Hipster's sensibility kept me rolling me eyes throughout.

There is something about Colin Fitz Lives! that I can't quit put my finger on. It's such a likable movie. It has this kinda grunge, devil may care, non sense sensibility, characteristic of the late 1990's.

Cast: John C. McGinley, Matt McGrath, William H. Macy, Andy Fowle, Julianne Phillips, Robert Bella, Will McCormack, Erik Jensen, Martha Plimpton, Mary McCormack, Chris Bauer Director: Robert Bella Summary: Knowing her rock star husband's grave will attract unwanted attention on the anniversary of his death, a widow (Julianne Phillips) hires two easily distracted security guards (Matt McGrath and Andy Fowle) to watch over it. But it doesn't stop kooky characters (including William H. Macy, Martha Plimpton, John C. McGinley, Mary McCormack and Chris Bauer) from stopping by to pay their respects. My Thoughts: "Definitely not a great comedy or movie for that matter. There were some funny moments. The acting was spotty. Some did well and others were awful. Seen it on the Sundance channel and thought why not. Well now I know I should have just NOT have clicked play."
