Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way (audiobook) by Bruce Campbell

I laughed my way through this audiobook!

6 hours
6 compact discs

I picked up and looked at the book version of Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way several times. But, I quickly snapped up the audiobook version because of this quote from the back cover from Bruce Campbell:

"...the prospects of doing a 'regular" audio adaptation weren't very appealing. But then a few things dawned on me:
1. I'm the lead character of the book.
2. As an actor by trade, I could play the part.
3. I'm knee deep in actor pals, why not record the book like a radio play?" 

At that point I was sold.

The story revolves around Bruce Campbell's attempt to move from being a B movie legend to a real A-list movie star. He gets his chance in "Let's Make Love", a Richard Gere/Rene Zelwegger romantic comedy directed by Mike Nichols. Of course, Bruce is hopelessly starstruck and out of his element as he messes the whole thing up - but that's where all the fun starts!

Bruce Campbell
This is a funny, offbeat story that goes off of the deep end but still drug me there laughing all the way. From Richard Gere learning how to fistfight (and absolutely loving it!) to Bruce Campbell holding off the FBI alongside two of his biggest fans in a running gun battle, I loved it!

Is it silly! Yes?!

Is it stupid! Of course!

It's offbeat, ridiculous, over the top and gloriously entertaining.

Highly recommended.

This audiobook can be found on Amazon.com here: Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way.

I rate this audiobook 5 stars out of 5
