Movie Info

When once-up-and-coming indie film starlet Halley Feiffer loses her boyfriend, her agent and her career in one fell swoop she finally realizes that something has got to change...she has to become WAY MORE FAMOUS! Armed with a stolen script and two pitchers of sangria, Halley enlists the help of her brother Ryan and his boyfriend to make a movie, starring herself (of course), and any A-list celebrity she can land. She will stop at nothing, even if it means hurting the only people who truly care about her. -- (C) Gravitas

Critic Reviews for He's Way More Famous Than You

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

The farce is so light on its feet that it's buoyant.

Self-pity, self-parody and self-destruction are blurred to cringe-inducing effect in He's Way More Famous Than You.

Top Critic

The screenplay never meshes its ideas into one satirical story or even a series of sketches with individually coherent points. A little meta goes a long, long way.

New York Post
Top Critic

This frenetic movie has moments of wit, and Ms. Feiffer, a seasoned screen and Broadway performer, has range, stamina and charisma.

Feiffer sometimes gets snagged on the look-at-me nature of her meta-performance, veering from pathological to pathetic, and not always in the best way.

Top Critic

A self-referential, insider farce about the hunger for Hollywood stardom, He's Way More Famous Than You is-like its leading lady-as unhinged as it is hilarious.

Audience Reviews for He's Way More Famous Than You

I definitely loved this film. You have to however be an admirer of totally and completely zany comedic films. I am reminded (as an example) of "What's Up Doc" with Barbra Streisand & Ryan O'Neil from 1972. This film is CRAZY, wacko, but is also cute, clever, funny and made me laugh out loud in several places. Even within it's craziness, it still made me root for the lead character of Halley. She's so sad and pathetic, you really want her to better her life and pull herself up and succeed at being happy. Her brother Ryan is awesome as well. You really feel for him that he's not a successful actor, and it waiting for his own big break. Again, I must say you need to be someone that appreciates and enjoys crazy, zany comedic "romps". If that is you, and you are not expecting a cinematic masterpiece made with millions of dollars, you will love this film. It certainly is quite worth seeing.
