Jimmy Hollywood ★½ 1994 (R)
Wanna-be Hollywood actor Pesci has never acted in his life but longs for stardom—which he gets after he accidentally becomes a community vigilante. Burned-out sidekick Slater helps create the videotapes that will bring Jimmy his 15 minutes of fame. Although appropriately desperate, Pesci's role comes off as mostly shtick; two dogs in a row for the usually talented Levinson (after “Toys”). 118m/C VHS, DVD . Joe Pesci, Christian Slater, Victoria Abril; Cameos: Barry Levinson, Rob Weiss; D: Barry Levinson; W: Barry Levinson; C: Peter Sova; M: Robbie Robertson.
