    It's lame, corny, Ed Woodishly amateurish -- all of which is as lovable as the big lug himself.

    If you don't already know who Bruce Campbell is, it will set you searching for other Bruce Campbell films on the theory that they can't all be like this. Start with "Evil Dead II," is my advice. Not to forget "Bubba Ho-Tep." In fact, start with them before My Name Is Bruce, which is low midrange in the Master's oeuvre.
  3. Campbell fans will get a kick out of it. The rest of the world will likely find this spoof a little too insular and indulgent.

    It gets by on its concept for a little while but too often mistakes stupid-stupid for clever-stupid.

    Cheerfully embracing his status as cult B-movie genre megastar even as he sends it up, Bruce Campbell's sophomore directorial excursion, My Name is Bruce, is a big in-joke of definite if limited appeal.

    My Name Is Bruce can be read as a man coming to terms with the career that he has been dealt, or it can be read as simply a trashy B-movie directed by the man who knows best.

    Go into this movie knowing what it is, a cheap and cheesy B-movie starring and directed by Bruce Campbell.

Not by any means a masterpiece, but it was never meant to be, but what it is an entertaining film. If you like the Evil Dead series and/or Bruce Campbell, then this movie is a must see as you can probably find something to like about (There are plenty of references in this film as a bonus).
