My Name is Bruce isn't new but I'm reviewing it anyway! Starring of course Bruce Campbell, My Name is Bruce is a movie that crosses the lines of reality and film in a way we've seen before but not with Bruce Campbell.

The release of Guan-Di means that Jeff's town, Gold Lick in Oregon, his family and friends, and the rest of the towns folk are in danger. Of course Jeff having watched numerous Bruce Campbell movies believes that Bruce is the man to save his town.
