Mamarazzi is a 2010 Filipino comedy-drama film directed by Joel Lamangan. The film stars Eugene Domingo, Diether Ocampo, and John Lapus as the main characters. The story follows the life of a mother who is an ardent fan of a popular celebrity, and her quest to get closer to the celebrity by using her young daughter as a means. Eugene Domingo plays the role of Mina, a single mother who is devoted to her daughter, played by child actress Janelle Jamer. Mina is a committed fan of the famous actor Frank (played by Diether Ocampo), who is her daughter's favorite celebrity. Mina's life revolves around her love for Frank, and she goes to great lengths to be close to him. She would often sneak into the film sets and even stalk him just to get a glimpse of him.

However, Mina's obsession causes her relationship with her daughter to suffer. Her daughter, who is often neglected by Mina, becomes resentful of her mother's behavior towards Frank. Mina is so blinded by her love for Frank that she fails to see the damage it is causing to her daughter.

The plot takes an interesting turn when Mina, along with her friend and confidante (played by John Lapus), decides to take matters into her own hands. They hatch a plan to use Mina's daughter as bait to get closer to Frank. Mina tries to introduce her daughter to Frank under the guise of a random encounter, but things go awry when Mina's daughter mistakenly blurts out their true intention.

The situation escalates quickly, and Mina finds herself in a compromising position with Frank. She is then faced with a dilemma of choosing between her obsession with Frank or her daughter's wellbeing.
