In front of the cameras and in public, famed Hollywood actress Honey Whitlock, a product of the studio system, is as sweet as her name. Behind the scenes, she is demanding and controlling, making life a nightmare for anyone who has to deal with her, especially her browbeaten assistant, Libby. She and her entourage are in Baltimore - what is emerging as the Hollywood of the east - for the premiere of her latest movie. The premiere gets hijacked by a group of guerrilla independent filmmakers, led by director Cecil B. DeMented, in wanting to make a statement against the Hollywood studio system and the bad movies they produce. Cecil and his band kidnap Honey in the process. What their goal is, with no money per se, to make their own movie starring Honey as a statement against the Hollywood studios. Their general process is to have the scripted elements of the movie, such as Honey's dialogue, being set against "real life" in they overtaking several of the Hollywood movie studio events in ...Written by
The kidnapping of Honey Whitlock, who later joins her kidnappers' cause, is similar to the real-life story of how Patricia Hearst was kidnapped by, and later joined, The Symbionese Liberation Army, in the 1970s. Hearst appears in the movie and has appeared in all of John Waters's movies since Cry-Baby (1990). See more »

The credits thank "Fred and Ginger" both insinuating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, the dance duo, and "Fred e Ginger" a movie by Federico Fellini, paying homage to the duo. See more »
There was a quick shot in earlier prints of the movie theater showing the director's cut of "Patch Adams", where we see the sign advertising the director's cut. This shot can still be seen on the intro to the DVD menu, and in one of the trailers. See more »

Funny, Rude, Demented - totally awesome!
If you like films that are not to be taken too seriously, this is it!
Cecil B Demented is a really funny, "low budgetly cult" film that boasts a fantastic cast who provide plenty of memorable moments as Cecil's rebellious cinematic misfits 'The Sprocket Holes'.
Stephen Dorff does a fantastic job playing Cecil - the crazy independent film maker who kidnaps Hollywood's most loved actress, Honey Whitlock (Melanie Griffith), in order to make his film a success in the world of underground cinema.
If you are a serial, hardcore movie goer, this is the film for you. Full of ridiculous, crude humor and masses of action and excitement - this is a classic.
And remember starring as the crazy Cecil B Demented is Stephen Dorff so you'll also have plenty of eye candy !!!
