Capsule Reviews of Today's AFI Film Fest

April 21, 1989|Chris Willman

Following are capsule reviews of today's screenings in the American Film Institute Los Angeles International Film Festival at the Cineplex Odeon Century Plaza Cinemas:

'Two Idiots in Hollywood'

United States, 1988, 90 minutes

10:35 p.m.

Possibly the worst film of this festival, or any festival of repute, ever. Director Stephen Tobolowsky and writer J. Barry Armstrong will no doubt take that passing hyperbole as a compliment, so heartily have they endeavored to make an awful camp classic, and how one does want to deny them even that satisfaction. Based on an equity-waiver revue, this foul-mouthed, free-wheeling, laughless comedy about two misogynist slobs trying to make it in show-biz is mostly for those who would like Sam Kinison if only he weren't such a heady guy.
