Bowfinger - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy star in Universal Pictures' and Imagine Entertainment's Bowfinger's Big Thing. Conceived and written by Martin, the film is directed by Frank Oz and produced by Brian Grazer.
Bobby Bowfinger (Martin) is a shameless wannabe film producer, who is desperate to break into the Hollywood big-time-in spite of the fact that he's broke and unconnected. His plans are thwarted when he is unable to land Hollywood's hottest action star, Kit Ramsey (Murphy) for the lead role in his movie. Undaunted, Bovrfinger decides to make the film with Ramsey anyway, except that Kit won't know he's in it.
Determined, Bowfinger and his motley crew surreptitiously stalk their unwitting star through the streets of Los Angeles. They film Kit's every move and trap him in scenes he doesn't know he is in, turning Kit's life into a paranoid nightmare, as Bowfinger's crazy schemes become more and more outrageous.
