Plot – Bobby Bowfinger, filmmaker and wanna-be director, is facing bankruptcy. Nonetheless, he manages to get credit from the people he keeps under contract though he never pays them. He claims to be in possession of a script that can be a successful movie. The idea is for the movie to star a famous actor without him knowing he is being filmed. The choice falls on Kit Ramsey, a famous actor who is always surrounded by his faithful entourage. Kit, however, is being treated by a psychoanalyst and when he sees himself surrounded by unfamiliar people, he begins to think he is going crazy and hides. Although Kit disappears, Bobby does not give up: he immediately hires Kit's virtually identical brother Jiff, who at first is uncomfortable and then becomes more relaxed, especially in the scenes with the beautiful Daisy, an actress who is ready to do anything to achieve success. Daisy is the first to understand the deception set up by Bobby. While filming the last sequence, the psychologist arrives and everything seems to go awry. However, there is a video that gets Kit in trouble and thanks to this Bobby manages to get the movie released in theatres. Success is great and unexpected. Bobby then gets an offer to film a new movie in Taiwan, however not with Kit but with his brother.
All actors – Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Heather Graham, Christine Baranski, Jamie Kennedy, Barry Newman, Adam Alexi-Malle, Kohl Sudduth, Terence Stamp, Robert Downey Jr., Alejandro Patiño, Alfred De Contrerasshow all
