Forget “Celebrity Apprentice!” Here’s a review of “Quigley”where Gary Busey plays a mean computer game business type guy who is turned into a dog. As a dog, Gary learns about life, flimsy sets, terrible special effect, non-comedic timing and how to sleep through a role. “Quigley” also features Booger, Patrick from “SpongeBob,” Christopher Atkins, the black guy from “Dream On” (he’s also the guy from “The Parkers”). Anthony Perkins’ son plays it straight as a fallen angel. The movie has everything: bad sets, bad lines and even a crew member walking in front of a camera. To be fair, it could just be a pushy extra who likes to wear vests and carry lights. All these elements make a very fun film.
The podcast features NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me”), Writer/director Paul Sullivan, Eric Neinhaus and host Adam Spiegelman. Sullivan talks about directing his low budget comedy “I’ll Believe You,” and how he almost got comedian Chris Elliott eaten by an alligator.
Here are some choice clips of “Quigly.” It’s from the “Found Footage Festival.” I don’t know what’s “found” about it. Did they “find” it in a bargain bin? Anyway, thanks for editing this for me to “borrow.” I have just started the “Borrowed Clip Fest.”
