Movie Info

EDDIE and his friend CHRIS, clap for a living as audience members on infomercials. They live a simple and content life, scraping by as the glitzy circus of Hollywood show-biz swirls around them. Eddie's only real excitement is his romance with local gas station attendant, JUDY, a beacon of light in a sea of monotony. But soon, Eddie's life is turned upside down when talk-show host JAYME STILLERMAN takes an interest in Eddie, launching a citywide media craze to uncover his true identity. The newfound fame costs him his job and Judy, who disappears without a trace. With no other choice, Eddie embarks into the world of late-night TV on a quest to hunt down his lost love.

Critic Reviews for The Clapper

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

If it's supposed to be a comedy, it's not funny. If it's supposed to be a satire, it doesn't know what it's satirizing.

Montiel treats his story's happily unsung oddballs with sincere affection. He doesn't hold them up to ridicule, or insist that they snap out of their quirkiness and conform. But he doesn't quite know what to do with them.

It's an interesting premise, but The Clapper doesn't live up to its namesake.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It may be early in the year, but it's a good bet "The Clapper" will land among 2018's worst films.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Even at a time of year when movie companies typically unload their dross, the sheer awfulness of Dito Montiel's "The Clapper" stands out.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Mostly it's a quiet salute to classic romantic comedy - and to a star who, frankly, is far nicer than the times he was born to work in.
