Movie Info

Clad in a blonde wig, Joe Pesci stars as the title character, a luckless actor. Unable to make it in the real showbiz world, Jimmy starts fantasizing about fame and fortune. His delusions eventually turn into reality when, through a fluke, Jimmy becomes known to one and all as "Jericho," a Robin Hood-like vigilante. Victoria Abril appears in a supporting role and the film's climax features a number of cameo performances.

An underrated little sleeper

"something of a snooze, for the most part"

July 29, 2002
Kalamazoo Gazette

A woefully unfunny, insider Hollywood yarn that allows Joe Pesci to yammer obnoxiously for two hours.

Audience Reviews for Jimmy Hollywood


Looking at the reviews, I come to the conclusion that nobody saw the same film that I did. This movie is a lot of fun, Joe Pesci gives one of his best comedic performances here, and Christian Slater is actually pretty good as Jimmy's sidekick William. Jimmy Hollywood was definitely a welcome return to form for Barry Levinson after his Toys debacle.

Stick to playing mobsters and not some weak fool.
