In Baltimore, guerrilla filmmaker Cecil B. Demented leads a band of cinema revolutionaries who kidnap Honey Whitlock, a bitchy and aging movie star of big-budget froth. Cecil wants her in his movie, a screed against Hollywood they film during blitzkrieg attacks on a multiplex, a Maryland Film Commission press conference, and the set of a "Forrest Gump" sequel. He insists on celibacy; the cast and crew channel sexual energy into the production. With a family-values coalition, aggrieved Teamsters, and the police on their trail, Cecil needs help from porno, kung-fu, and drive-in audiences. What about Honey? Will she bolt or refuse to act? Or will she hit her marks and light up the screen?Written by
Cecil's mom tells him, "repeat after me. It's only a movie. It's only a movie." This was the tagline to several horror films, most famously The Last House on the Left (1972). 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 »
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 !!!
