This Italian comedy takes an affectionate look at a motley group of free-lance photographers desperate to grab a good shot of a celebrity, with a host of Italian TV personalities appearing as themselves. "The Potato" (Roberto Brunetti) is a would-be paparazzo who lives with his uncle (Christian De Sica) and two other aspiring cameramen, "King" (Diego Abatantuono) and "Ciro 3000" (Nino D'Angelo). They join forces with the remarkably inept "Mr. Bean" (Massimo Boldi, and no relation to Rowan Atkinson's better-known character of the same name) in hopes of getting the kind of pictures that will make their reputation. The stalked celebrities in Paparazzi include Brigitte Nielsen, who with characteristic aggressiveness threatens one of the shutterbugs with a large pair of scissors.
