The Hartford Courant Luvs The Bruce!

Check out the review at:,0,474227.story


A movie whose whole premise is an hour-and-a-half riff on one guy's persona would seem unbearably egotistical if Campbell didn't make himself out to be such a jerk. In his hands, it's just fun. The movie is overstuffed with hilarious sight gags, one-liners and recurring absurdities. Some cater to Campbell's core fan base. Others are a hoot even to those who don't care for cheesy horror.

It's all done with jaded, fond knowingness of Campbell's singular niche in the entertainment universe. Campbell might be the king of cinema mediocrity, but he's having a great time being the king of something.
