Coverage:

     A smoothly directed farce about a down on his luck producer-director named Bobby Bowfinger (Steve Martin) who wants to film a movie about space aliens hiding in drops of water. The only problem is Bowfinger needs big name action star Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy) to star in his the picture, or the Hollywood studios won't buy it. When Ramsey says, "No," Bowfinger begins making the picture by sneaking Ramsey into the film without his knowledge.
     Instead of going for cheap laughs, the picture actually gets funnier as Bowfinger keeps coming up with ingenious ways to get Ramsey into his film. Eventually, Ramsey gets so neurotic his hides out and Bowfinger has to hire goofy look alike named Jiff (also Murphy) a dead-ringer for Ramsey to finish the picture. Bowfinger is a funny and quick-witted satire about Hollywood's interworkings.
