August 10, 2001
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.

Often loses focus and wanders, unsure of where it wants to go.

A funny idea in search of a funny execution.

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?
July 20, 2001
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.

July 18, 2001
A sprightly, entertaining film, but one in which the satire is neutralized for laughs.

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.

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.

A crowd-pleaser, content to serve a little meat along with the sweets.
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 5, 2001
Sweet, silly, not-bad.

Its arc is as easy to forecast as its soundtrack is tiresome.
July 5, 2001
A hearty mainstream comedy with a sharp satirical edge balanced with just enough sentimentality to send audiences home happy.

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!
June 12, 2001
Too brisk and plucky to dislike.
February 13, 2001
The mood is light and the actors give engaging performances.
