Confessions of a Dangerous Mind movie scene

Drew Barrymore loves Chuck Barris in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

An A-list cast takes center stage in the 2002 film Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, helmed by Academy Award-winning actor and Oscar-nominated director George Clooney (The American).

The biographical comedy movie adapts famed TV producer Chuck Barris’ cult classic memoir, which tells his story of being a successful TV producer (of such shows as The Dating Game and The Gong Show) who moonlights as a CIA operative.

The film stars Sam Rockwell (Iron Man 2) as Barris, along with able supporting players Drew Barrymore (Going the Distance), Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Julia Roberts (Larry Crowne), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Nanny McPhee Returns) and Clooney, himself.

Well-received by the critics during its release in theaters, Confessions grossed $16.5 million at the domestic box office.

The debut Blu-ray edition has the following bonus features, all of which were seen on previously released DVD editions of the film:

  • feature commentary with Clooney and cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel
  • deleted scenes with commentary
  • six behind-the-scenes vignettes
  • Sam Rockwell screen test
  • “Gong Show” acts
  • “The Real Chuck Barris” documentary
