Bobby Bowfinger, a run-down actor-producer-director, is reading a script which a friend has written.

Completely convinced of its quality, he decides to take a last shot at fame and fortune.

But the script is not that easy to sell, and a famous producer promises he’ll do it but there is one condition: Kit Ramsey, Hollywood's number one star, has to be in it.

So, Bobby tries his luck with Kit - who says no - and then decides to shoot the film himself.

Bobby sets out to shoot the science-fiction-film starring Kit Ramsey - who does not even know he's being filmed.
