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.

Synthetic, bubble-headed.
November 2, 2001
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.
Full Review| Original Score: 2.5/5

Its arc is as easy to forecast as its soundtrack is tiresome.
July 27, 2001

July 5, 2001
Between its tired, cliche-ridden target and its cast of tiresome characters, a better title for this Belgian import would have been Everybody's Fatuous!
July 5, 2001
An odd combination of sentimentality and cynicism.
July 5, 2001
It's exactly the kind of artless, Indiewood snuggle-fest that wants audiences to buy tickets as if they've never seen a 'feel-good' movie before.
July 5, 2001
This pathetic shaggy-dog tale is a picture only a mother could love.
Full Review | Original Score: D
July 6, 2001
Deruddere seems intent on indicting the television culture for promoting unrealistic hopes of stardom, but the film ultimately embraces the medium as a means of self-fulfillment.
July 6, 2001
Too gooey at the center to rate as a satire.

A movie that aspires to be Muriel's Wedding and can't muster the proper wacky fraudulence to achieve that goal is a sad spectacle indeed.

July 27, 2001
Often loses focus and wanders, unsure of where it wants to go.
July 27, 2001
Writer-director Deruddere pads his cynicism with sugar. The mixture doesn't work.
July 27, 2001
Perky but spineless.
July 27, 2001
The performances are ... flat, unfunny and uninvolving.
August 2, 2001
Deruddere muddles the film by not allowing much variation in mood.
