Crew
Directed by Michael Urie


In the daring and hilarious HE'S WAY MORE FAMOUS THAN YOU, actress and writer Halley Feiffer (Bored to Death) turns her up and down life in the movies into a madcap black comedy.

Halley plays an exaggerated version of herself, a manic alcoholic living off the fumes of fame generated by her performance in The Squid and the Whale (2005). Desperate for attention, she decides to apply for a grant at an independent film festival. Thinking only of stardom, she spends her time begging celebrities to act in her unwritten drama, pestering Natasha Lyonne (American Pie), Mamie Gummer (Side Effects), and the Karate Kid himself Ralph Macchio. As she drunkenly chases fame, her personal relationships disintegrate, and when the camera starts rolling she begins to realize how alone she really is.

Feiffer bursts out of the screen with screwball energy, making HE'S WAY MORE FAMOUS THAN YOU one of the funniest Hollywood satires in ages.

Reviews

“...Ben Stiller, Jesse Eisenberg, Mamie Gummer and Ralph Macchio, all playing themselves ...good-naturedly puncturing their reputations." - The New York Times
