DIRECTOR: FRANK OZ
CAST: STEVE MARTIN, EDDIE MURPHY, HEATHER GRAHAM, TERENCE STAMP
Steve Martin writes and stars as flim-flam man producer Bobby Bowfinger, planning to shoot his action masterpiece Chubby Rain with megastar Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy) in the lead role. This is complicated by the fact that Ramsey refuses to star in the movie, which calls for hidden cameras and a sweet, nerdy “double,” Jiff (Murphy, again). With Heather Graham as a ruthless wannabe actress, and the finest Cahiers du cinema cameo in American movies of the 1990’s.
Bowfinger is screening as part of the series Terence Stamp.
