[Harper and Stokes just came back from Laramie's house]
So what do we do now?
[with increasing anger]
The whole idea of going IN THERE, Wendell, was to protect ourselves. If we were worried about Laramie coming after us before, we have GUARANTEED it now!
Why don't we go to the police?
[incensed and angrier]
And tell them what? "We broke into his house. YOU *ATTACKED* HIS WIFE! And that WE would like some protection?" You are a moron, Wendell. You are an ABSOLUTE *MORON*!
Hey, what the hell do you ...

in the grand tradition of "Mommie Dearest", "Showgirls" and "Pay it Forward" comes "Paparazzi", from the mind of Mel Gibson's hairdresser. This film manages to embrace every direct-to-video thriller cliché with such zest- every line, every situation is portrayed with such conviction that you have to wonder, 'do these people even realize how BAD this is'? This film stars Cole "no eyebrows" Hauser as Bo Laramie, an up and coming action star whose new film "Adrenaline Force" (yes, what a name) has thrust him into the public eye. But Tom Sizemore (aged "34", according to a TV show in the film) and Daniel "I live in a Sombrero house" Baldwin, renegade "bad seed" employees of 'Paparazzi' magazine have other plans for Bo. They terrorize him in his lovely Malibu home, take incrimininating photos of him and Sierra at the local Wild Oats, and inflict a tacky car chase-by-way-of-Lady Diana accident harming his family. What's Bo to do? Exact his revenge? Who cares. I saw this film with a friend knowing it would be hilariously, ridiculously off-key- and it certainly was. What a treat this film was- one of the funniest I've seen in years.
