DVD of the Day #59 - My Name is Bruce

Man, I’ve been waiting for this movie for about two years. I love Bruce Campbell, even if he’s been in some shitty, shitty movies and written one decent book and one fucking awful one. This movie’s premise was everything I ever wanted from a comedy/horror/fourth wall breaking picture and it didn’t fail to disappoint.

My Name is Bruce stars Bruce Campbell as Bruce Campell, except a horrible version of himself that is mean, crude, rude, self-centered, and not too bright. Basically it’s a combination of all of the real Mr. Campbell’s worst personality traits combined with that of Ash from The Evil Dead trilogy and enhanced. The end result is awesome and involves sexy she-male nurses, the pushing of paralyzed war veterans into on-coming traffic and a level of sexist misogyny that is so off the wall, you have to laugh at the extreme lunacy of ol’ B-movie actor Bruce.

Meanwhile, in a little ramshackle town of 400 or so people in West Virginia named Gold Lick, an ancient Chinese protector of the dead named Guan-di is released from the mine where hundreds of immigrant Chinese workers were killed by the white man’s stupidity and he starts knocking off all the descendents of those who caused the death of Chinese miners. Which is to say…everyone in the town. One young man, who is a weird goth kid obssessed with Bruce Campbell’s movies suggests that he could finish off Guan-di because he does it in movies all the time. Because everyone who lives in a small town is hilariously stupid, no one sees the flaw in this plan. So they set out to kidnap Bruce Campbell, who thinks this entire thing is a birthday prank being pulled on him by his agent.

Well it isn’t and as soon as Bruce realizes this, his incompetance and cowardly nature gets a lot of people killed. Only when Bruce realizes his biggest fan is going to be killed by this Chinese demon, does he man up and save the day…or does he? BUM BUM BUM

My Name is Bruce is easily the funniest thing Bruce Campbell has ever been in and it is mercilessly cruel and funny towards everything. Bruce himself, his career, B-movies, hillbillies, racism, white people playing ethnic roles, Dead & Breakfast, and more are heavily satired in this. It’s also nice to see cameos from people who were in the all three Evil Dead movies willing to mock their own careers and movies as well. The only bad thing about the movie is seeing how much Bruce has aged and let himself go over the years, but hey, we can’t all keep our rugged good looks forever.

A great comedy with over the top gore for laugh purposes and a perfect skewering of the B-Horror movie industry. Definitely pick it up if you get the chance.

Is It Worth Keeping: Yes.

Rating: 8/10
