Delightful Film
22 April 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film is a fascinating look into a unique profession where only a handful of individuals specialize. It is entertaining and follows talented individuals who work at their craft to portray various celebrities in demand for corporate functions and special events. There are amusing moments and good story lines about each character and an opportunity to observe a close knit community that gather once a year at a convention to grow in their field and positively contribute to our society's insatiable appetite and fascination with celebrity culture. Nice pacing and well presented. Talent from all over the USA and abroad. They tell stories of experiences they've encountered as their celebrity.
