YMMV: Bowfinger
  • Acceptable Ethnic Targets: Toyed with but ultimately subverted. Bowfinger gets his film crew by hustling illegal Mexican immigrants into the back of his van. By the end of the movie, the men have learned all about film-making and are now respected and highly successful professionals.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Even if Bowfinger isn't doing it knowingly, in the end this is a film about a wanna-be director making a film by stalking a paranoid-delusional and having a script and actors that play to his mental illnesses to provoke the react they need from his character. Kit spends most of the film on the verge of a total nervous breakdown and is reduced to a sobbing wreck at one point.
