He's Way More Famous Than You
When once-up-and-coming indie film starlet Halley Feiffer loses her boyfriend, her agent and her career in one fell swoop she finally realizes that something has got to change...she has to become WAY MORE FAMOUS! Armed with a stolen script and two pitchers of sangria, Halley enlists the help of her brother Ryan and his boyfriend to make a movie, starring herself (of course), and any A-list celebrity she can land. She will stop at nothing, even if it means hurting the only people who truly care about her. -- (C) Gravitas

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The farce is so light on its feet that it's buoyant."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"This frenetic movie has moments of wit, and Ms. Feiffer, a seasoned screen and Broadway performer, has range, stamina and charisma."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"While on some level, He's Way More Famous Than You successfully skewers the cult of celebrity and the entertainment business, it ultimately marginalizes itself from the audience because of the un-likability of the leading character."
‑ Christine N. Ziemba, Paste Magazine
"Self-pity, self-parody and self-destruction are blurred to cringe-inducing effect in He's Way More Famous Than You."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"Feiffer sometimes gets snagged on the look-at-me nature of her meta-performance, veering from pathological to pathetic, and not always in the best way."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Anything-goes, loopily autobiographical romp about the travails of a desperate actress it would be a nightmare to encounter in real life. But haven't we all, on some level?"
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The screenplay never meshes its ideas into one satirical story or even a series of sketches with individually coherent points. A little meta goes a long, long way."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"A self-referential, insider farce about the hunger for Hollywood stardom, He's Way More Famous Than You is-like its leading lady-as unhinged as it is hilarious."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"It would have been nice if the film had surrendered to its lunacy more blatantly, more carelessly."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
