Multitalented comedian Martin Short brings his character Jiminy Glick, the Butte, Montana entertainment television reporter, to the big screen in the comedy JIMINY GLICK IN LALAWOOD. A little sweaty and a lot excitable, Jiminy's finally headed to the big time: the Toronto Film Festival. With his wife Dixie (Jan Hooks) and twin sons Matthew and Modine in tow, Jiminy is poised to realize his celebrity-worshipping dreams by becoming an industry player. After he scores an interview with reclusive, bad-boy actor Ben DiCarlo (Corey Pearson), Jiminy is catapulted to sudden fame and everyone wants in on the action. A famous actress on the decline, Miranda Coolidge (Elizabeth Perkins), seeks Jiminy out, but their new friendship appears to have a deadly result. Can gentle journalist Glick have a hidden violent side'
Short, who co-wrote this film with Paul Flaherty and Michael Short, first introduced Jiminy Glick via his Comedy Central television program PRIMETIME GLICK. Here, in a feature-length film, Jiminy has ample room to skewer the pervasive culture of celebrity worship while tying in knowledge of movies and Hollywood history. Staying with his family in a creepy hotel far from the glitterati, with director David Lynch (Short again) as a quasi-guide and narrator, Jiminy navigates the treacherous waters of fame with hilarious results.
