My Name is Bruce is a 2007 comedy film. A sequel is in the works.

PlotEdit

My Name is Bruce is the heroic struggle of a small mining town (Gold Lick, Oregon) to rid itself of a vengeful monster. Guan-di (Jamie Peck), the Chinese god of war, protector of the dead and patron saint of bean curds, has been unleashed by cemetery-desecrating teenagers to protect the graves of Chinese miners lost in a deadly cave-in of yesteryear.

The deadly demon's mission is to eradicate all those who transgressed against the tomb (relatives included), which is virtually the entire population of Gold Lick. The small community has to find a solution so Jeff (Taylor Sharpe), the sole survivor of a deadly Guan-Di encounter, takes it upon himself to kidnap his idol, Bruce Campbell (Bruce Campbell), star of countless B-movie horror films, and recruit him to be their local savior.

Mortified at first, Bruce eventually goes along with Jeff's prank, convinced that it is all an elaborate birthday present from his agent (Ted Raimi). He begins to enjoy the spoils of being a movie hero, including free liquor and Jeff's attractive mother, Kelly (Grace Thorsen).

Jeff's scheme goes horribly wrong when his hero, known more for fighting directors than mythical warriors, haphazardly leads the town in battle against Guan-Di. Confronted by a monster that is not a guy in a rubber suit, and with the blood of innocents on his hands, Bruce abandons the harsh reality of Gold Lick for the sanctity of his former, artificial life.

In his ramshackle desert trailer, Bruce resumes the daily grind of genre sequels, poor housekeeping and cheap whiskey, but a gut-wrenching call from his biggest fan, Jeff — now forced to take on Guan-Di alone — prompts the actor to re-evaluate his destiny.

Against his better judgment (and the angry citizens of Gold Lick), Bruce returns to defeat Guan-Di, save Jeff, and snag his hot mother. In the climactic, mano-a-monster, Bruce tries to rise above the miserable off-screen schmuck that he is and become a hero in real life. However, as Guan-Di emerges to attack Bruce with his guard down, it turned out to be movie being revealed by Hollywood suits as Bruce pleads with them for a ending with no twist. Though he apparently got the ending he intended, Bruce is attacked by Guan-Di as he rips his way through the movie screen to get him.
