Plot & Details
Comedienne extraordinaire Julie Brown writes and directs Medusa: Dare to Be Truthful, a direct spoof of the documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare. Brown stars as Medusa, a hypersexual egomanic singer on a world tour dubbed "The Blonde Leading the Blonde." Filmed in black-and-white with color performance footage, this mockumentary parodies the original film almost scene-for-scene. For example, Medusa visits her dead dog in the pet cemetary and performs fellatio on a watermelon on a dare. Songs include "Expose Yourself," "Everybody, Be Excited," and "Vague." Also starring comedians Bob Goldthwait and Chris Elliott. Julie Brown and co-writer Charlie Coffey won an award from the Writers Guild of America for their script. Medusa: Dare to Be Truthful was originally aired on Showtime before it was released on home video.
