Christopher Guest's latest bitter-sweet comedy does not hesitate to deliver on the laughs. I sat in the theatre and I thought my lungs were going to explode. The story focuses around a group of actors making an absolutely horrible film with hyped-up dreams of winning an academy award. The full spectrum of crazy characters in this film is jaw-dropping.

I would definitely agree that this type of humor isn't for everyone. I think these movies are great, but the laughs aren't given to you on cue like they would be in a Will Farrell movie. Its dry and situational and you either get it or you don't for the most part. Thats not a knock to people who dislike these movies by any means, but some people watch just waiting for a punchline. I would suggest starting with 'Best In Show' from this same cast and if you like that you will enjoy the others for the most part. This one is definitely worth a watch.

Christopher Guest is a creative spirit who has been able to make some very funny films like 'Best In Show' where his technique of avoiding a script by giving his cast of actors an outline as matrix for a scene, letting them ad lib the idea a couple of times, then accepting the second or third take as the final product - pasting all the bits together in the edit. Sometimes it works: sometimes it flounders. Or to quote a famous advertisement 'Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't'. For this viewer this mocumentary about a very bad film company churning out a very bad film with a rather pitiful cast of actors falling victim to Internet rumors that an Oscar is in the air works as a funny idea and social comment for about the first half four and then sadly falls apart painfully as it proceeds to its wholly predictable end. Guest uses his usual company of actors (Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey, etc) and they seem to have a good time making fun of themselves ultimately. Yes, there are funny moments, but the further the movie plods the less funny the moments become and ultimately the result of the 'rumor of greatness' shows us the shallow lives of the sad sack troupe of actors and producers and writers that started out with a pretty awful idea. Guest usually pulls these capers off nicely, but perhaps with such films as 'The Producers' musical on the screens simultaneously the joke is stale. It is a good film to watch as Oscar time is upon us - and there is some pungent jabbing at awards concepts floating through the film. This is a movie for Guest fans, but not a good start for those who don't know his work. Grady Harp
