Most Popular Film Words

A film technique in which an actor who quits or dies in the middle of filming a movie is replaced by a lookalike who is shot mostly from the back. Named for Shemp Howard, a member of the Three Stooges who died of a stroke during the production of several Stooges films.
In the middle of the film "Return of the Pink Panther," Inspector Jaques Clouseau's plane crashed into the ocean, presumably to hide the fact that the actor that portrayed him, Peter Sellers, had just died. In a few shots, Inspector Clouseau is seen from the back as an actor impersonates his voice, a technique known as "shemping."

To perform extremely well in something and subsequently fall from grace with such amazing speed it makes one's head spin.

Originated from Eddie Murphy's performance in the excellent "Dreamgirls" to his current piece of shit film "Norbit"
How does one go from one great movie to such a shitty movie so quickly?

Joe used to be the leading scorer on this basketball team...now he puts up enough bricks to build a shelter for the homeless. This nigga pulled a Norbit, BIG time.

a film intentionally made to fit into the "B" movie genre, but done so well it is a really good film, unlike your standard "B" movie
"Machete" is intentionally cheesy, but the great acting and direction make it B+ movie, not a B movie.
