Ebert's Dream Come True

Pauly Shore is Dead...the fondest wish of movie critics and BioDome movie-goers has been brought to life in the movie of the same title. It is, as you would expect, about the death of Pauly Shore. The surprise is who it's from...Pauly Shore. He wrote, directed, starred, and financed the part-fantasy, part-autobiography in which he plays a slightly more pathetic version of himself at the tail end of his career. In a dream, Sam Kinison visits him and advises him to kill himself to be appreciated. Instead, Shore fakes his death and watches himself become recognized at last. Of course, the plan goes wrong.

The second most surprising thing about this movie is the fact that it's been generally well-received by movie critics at Rottentomatoes.com. I think most people are surprised to discover Shore has any talent at all, but it could be a good movie. I may watch it and see. At its worst, we get to see a world without Pauly Shore, and that's always a good thing. Now all we need is Paris Hilton is Dead.

Dear Sir,

There's nothing worse than an unfunny comedian who just won't go away.

Dear Sir,

The only thing worse is a washed-up actor who just won't go away.

Ha! I actually saw a preview for this movie at the beginning of "Dodgeball" (DO NOT rent it) and I have to admit the guy's got a pretty good head on his shoulders. Think about it. Here he's covering two audiences: those who love him and those who hate him. Since that pretty much covers 90% of the world he's got a built-in audience.
Now of course, is it funny...?
