Address Comments To:
Joe Pesci's performance is the best part of JIMMY HOLLYWOOD and the most off-the-wall part he has done. Victoria Abril as Jimmy's girlfriend, although not adequately used in the film, also turns in a credible performance, as does Christian Slater. The difficulties with JIMMY HOLLYWOOD can be attributed to a lack of direction. Director Barry Levinson can't decide whether to make a character comedy or a tragic urban drama.
