How does Bobby Bowfinger (Steve Martin), Hollywood’s least successful director, get Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy), Hollywood’s biggest star, in his ultra low-budget film? Any way he can. With an ingenious scheme and the help of Kit’s eager and nerdy brother Jiff, an ambitious and sexy wannabe (Heather Graham) and an over-the-hill diva (Christine Baranski), Bowfinger sets out to trick Kit Ramsey into the performance of a lifetime. Enjoy the fun with Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin – together for the first time in the hit comedy Bowfinger.
