Bobby Bowfinger is a bottom-feeding producer with a sure-fire alien invasion script called “Chubby Rain” but no cash and no star. Perhaps, if he follows action hero Kit Ramsey around town and films him secretly, he can conjure box office gold. Martin said he was not thinking of Roger Corman or Ed Wood. “I was thinking of when I was nineteen years old and came to Hollywood and didn’t know what to do. The moment in the movie that’s the closest to my actual experience is when Heather Graham gets off the bus and says, “Where do I go to be an actress?” When Eddie Murphy was cast, Kit became an action star, riffing on Murphy’s real career. Why is this a MovieDiva movie? Because MovieDiva loves to laugh.
