Having learned to content himself with his anonymity, when he doesn’t put his hands together for dubious merchandise or ask softball questions, Eddie is looking for excuses to visit his secret crush, Judy: a mousy cashier at a small gas station on Melrose Avenue. Then, Eddie catches the eye of the famous late-night talk show host, Jayme Stillerman, and just like that, anonymous Krumble becomes an overnight sensation. But, sometimes, love prefers to be quiet, and fame can be so loud and exhausting. Can there be a future between the clapper and the gas-station girl?
Plot: 15 minutes of fame destroys the life of a man who works as a clapper in television.

Although there’s a romantic aspect, and although there are some laughs, this is really a drama. This poor schmuck is taken advantage of as he gets 15 minutes of fame he never asked for. He doesn’t have much to begin with, and now he’s lost even that. It’s pretty depressing, to be honest! But it’s a good story.
Should be named The Victim
I found The Clapper to be a very absorbing film, but odd in a number of parts.
It was a very good study with elements of Educating Rita, when compared to the evaluation of certain long-held ideas: that becoming “famous” is desirable, that it is OK to use people for financial gain, and that just because you want something you should have it, regardless of the morals and responsibilities that go with the territory.
America’s obsession with becoming famous, and becoming rich (& famous) for basically doing nothing but being famous, is lightly viewed here, and I can’t fathom why the script called for such low intelligence depicted by the characters Eddie & Chris.
We are all subject to the seduction of money and “elevating our status”, and certainly the hegemony of America’s wealthy is shown to some degree and put to the test. However I felt it wasn’t necessary to have Eddie & Chris shown as less to lower average intelligence, and therefore grossly gullible. The greed of getting something for nothing as depicted by the network executives is interesting, as was the price of eventual “fame”, but I would have been more interested in seeing how persons of average intelligence find it so difficult to earn a living in a country that allegedly worships the dollar and is fixated on making a buck at the expense of “the other guy” – more egalitarian countries don’t have the socio-economic problems that such predatory behaviour brings. Being used & discarded is distasteful to anyone, and the likes of Hilton & Kardashian cashing in on vapidity is hopefully a trend that will ultimately end, when networks stop trying to sell advertising by elevating such lack of ability to do anything & its hollowness is finally recognised.
Two marks above pass from me, and I hope to see more of the same in the future – its getting very difficult to find a film that is thoughtful, reflective and interesting to anyone over 25 these days, we don’t all need explosions and gun play, and yes we still go to the cinema and pay for tickets – please stop ignoring your most loyal audience !
