Dummy (2002) (C)
"A fresh, delightful, perfectly cast romantic comedy."
Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter.
Academy Award Winner Adrien Brody stars as a loveable loser who finds his inner voice by becoming a ventriloquist.
Steven Schoichet (Brody) is in a rut: he lives at home with his crazed parents and weird sister, Heidi (Illeana Douglas), and is stuck in a dead end job - until he decides to follow his bliss at the urging of his outrageous friend, Fangora (Milla Jovovich).
Buying a ventriloquist dummy, he hits the small-time comedy circuit to the horror of his family and the delight of his beautiful job counselor, Lorena (Vera Farmiga), who becomes his biggest fan... and then, his first love, in this hysterical romantic comedy, proving that the dumbest thing you can do is not follow your dream -- (C) Artisan Home Entertainment, 2002, USA.
Starring Adrien Brody, Milla Jovovich, Illeana Douglas, Vera Farmiga, Jessica Walter, Ron Liebman, Jared Harris.
