Synopsis

 

From the dangerous mind of Chuck Barriscomes one of the most infamous motion pictures ever-The Gong Show Movie!Long absent from home video formats, this one-of-a-kind cult film has at last taken its act to BluRay. Inspired by the TV talent(less) show, The Gong Show Moviepresents a week in the life of beleaguered game show producer and Gong Show host Chuck Barris(played by Mr. Barris himself, in a masterstroke of casting.) Between a ratings-obsessed executive, out-of-control contestants and judges, and a seemingly endless string of auditions and encounters with “fans”, Chuck’s got his hands full…which leaves him no room to keep a grip on his own sanity. Can he get it together before the gong is struck on both his private life and his career?
