  1. The result is a sprightly, entertaining film, but one in which the satire is neutralized for laughs.

    If there's any justice in moviedom, this summer's feel-good hit will be an unassuming Dutch comedy called Everybody's Famous!
  3. 75
    Likable comedy about ordinary people stumbling badly and then triumphing.
  4. Reviewed by: Frank Lovece

    Sometimes seems as noisy and unrefined as Jean himself. But it has just as much heart, and builds up to rousingly "Rocky"-like climax.
  5. It makes for a sweet and heartwarming story even as it celebrates and justifies the entire ridiculous phenomenon that Deruddere has been spoofing all along.
  6. With its likable blue-collar characters and its unpretentious exuberance, Everybody's Famous is reminiscent of recent British comedies like "Brassed Off" and "The Full Monty."
  7. 30
    The one saving grace is a sweet, affecting performance by Werner de Smedt.
