This movie, while making some very good point about the movie industry, didn't really seem to hit its mark all the time. I felt it needed to go a bit more indepth at times, but it kept to the surface only.
Slow. Not particularly funny. Need to be in the industry to appreciate. Long way from these guy's best.
Enjoyable but less so than the other Guest comedies "Best in Show" Waiting for Guffman" etc. Some amusing moments but, overall, I was expecting a funnier movie. Performances are great.
Usual fare for a Christopher Guest film. I enjoyed it.
Not as funny as it could have been, or as the actors clearly *thought* it was. There are some hilarious individual performances, but put together as a whole, it just comes off kind of bland. Most of the characters are just pathetically sad and there's no real pay-off in the end. It's an interesting look at the insanity of Hollywood and the shallowness of the movie industry, but ultimately there was so much *more* that could have been done with this.
Special Features: Cast
I thought this was the best of these films. Very well done.
mildly funny - sadly Christopher Guest's movies have become less funny, with Spinal Tap and Best in Show still the highlights. This one is passable but not memorable.
There is something very cliched and predictable about this so-called satire on Hollywood. It's as if it is a product and has all the characteristics of something that it is trying to criticise. 2.5 stars
Bearable but could have been so much better!!!
Mildly funny, but there's not enough happening to keep me interested throughout.
The performances were good, but I wasn't that entertained and I didn't smile or laugh once while watching it! Seemed like a great cast that was not exploited to their fullest
Not as good as A Mighty Wind, but the similar cast is good at what it has been given comparatively. Good for the genre though.
sort of funny. quite funny really. One or two priceless moments to do with cosmetic surgery
A great laugh from excellent comedy team. Especially funny for those of us with a healthy sceptisism of the 'players' in the Hollywood movie industry (ego-centric agents, directors, extras, etc).
Not a patch on "Best in Show" and probably not AS appealing to those who hadn't seen Best in Show beforehand. Funny enough though.
Another great laugh fest from Christopher Guest and company.
Some funny moments but this film not as good as their previous ones.
