You can come out from under that blonde wig, Joe Pesci: we know it's you playing Jimmy Hollywood. The title character is a luckless actor who can't make it in the real showbiz world, so he starts fantasizing about fame and fortune. His delusions turn into reality in an unexpected fashion: through a fluke, Pesci becomes known to one and all as "Jericho," a Robin Hood-like vigilante. The film's comic value ebbs and flows, but when it does work, it operates on all cylinders. Our only real quibble: why cast the fascinating Victoria Abril in such a nothing part? Watch for a couple of cute cameo appearances at the climax of Jimmy Hollywood.
