Storyline

The story is inspired by a real-life fan who pursued Limp Bizkit's frontman Fred Durst many years ago, and the screenplay was written by Durst and Dave Bekerman. It follows Moose (played by John Travolta), who gets cheated out of meeting his favorite action hero, Hunter Dunbar (played by Devon Sawa). Moose then hunts down Dunbar to get the celebrity interaction he feels he deserves. Harmless at first, Moose's actions begin to take a dark turn. Against the advice of his friend Leah (Ana Golja), Moose begins to make frequent visits to his hero's private home. As the visits continue to escalate, Dunbar finds himself in increasing danger.

Humiliating
7 September 2019 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

If John Travolta decided to become a spokesperson for adult diapers it would not be as humiliating as this movie. That he was once the gorgeous star of Saturday Night Fever makes the experience of watching this film especially sad. John plays a fanatical overgrown child-man who has "a thing" for a certain actor he ends up stalking, but nothing about this movie rings true. His acting is over the top and painful to watch. Every one else is a cliche and what makes it even worse is that for long stretches it is just plain boring. I never understood why his female friend would put up with him. Strangely the only actor who rises above the bottom of the barrel is Devon Sawa although I have to wonder how he got through those scenes with Travolta over-acting. I guessed the end half-way through the movie as it became preposterous. It is not so bad it's good. It's just depressing, sad and poorly done. Fred Durst and Travolta should never team up again to produce a movie. I only give this 3 stars because some people might delight in watching John Travolta reach what has to be the bottom rung of his career.
