Jimmy Hollywood is an American comedy film written and directed by Barry Levinson and starring Joe Pesci and Christian Slater. While initially unsuccessful at the box office, it has since gained a cult following.

Plot[edit]

Jimmy Alto (Pesci) is a failing actor living in Los Angeles. After increasing frustration with his career going nowhere and with crime in the city, Jimmy, along with his "spaced-out" best friend William (Slater), decides to take the law into his own hands.

When he isn't working as a waiter, Jimmy transforms himself into "Jericho," leader of a mock-vigilante group that videotapes criminals and then turns them over to the police. Jimmy enjoys the free publicity, anonymously, but eventually the police begin to close in on him, resulting in a tense standoff at the Grauman's Egyptian Theatre.

Music[edit]

Robbie Robertson created music for the film and produced the soundtrack.
