Capsule Reviews of Today's AFI Film Fest

Following are capsule reviews of today's screenings in the American Film Institute Los Angeles International Film Festival at the Cineplex Odeon Century Plaza Cinemas:

'Two Idiots in Hollywood'

United States, 1988, 90 minutes

10:35 p.m.

Possibly the worst film of this festival, or any festival of repute, ever. Director Stephen Tobolowsky and writer J. Barry Armstrong will no doubt take that passing hyperbole as a compliment, so heartily have they endeavored to make an awful camp classic, and how one does want to deny them even that satisfaction. Based on an equity-waiver revue, this foul-mouthed, free-wheeling, laughless comedy about two misogynist slobs trying to make it in show-biz is mostly for those who would like Sam Kinison if only he weren't such a heady guy.
