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!'

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

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.
| Original Score: 2/4

A sprightly, entertaining film, but one in which the satire is neutralized for laughs.

A highly entertaining escape even for those of us who are already oversaturated with entertainment.

The charming Everybody's Famous is more than a little predictable and not particularly realistic - but that shouldn't seriously discourage anyone looking for light summer fun with a Flemish accent.

A likable satire on celebrity, Flemish-style, it is no less pointed than its American counterparts, just a lot less pompous.

[Director] Deruddere never condescends to the characters--as foolish as they may be, she respects them and sympathizes with them and so do we.

A crowd-pleaser, content to serve a little meat along with the sweets.
