    Like others, I'm a fan of this crew of actors and have seen all the other films they've made together. This one wasn't in the same league as those. That may be because it's too close to the bone when it comes to how Hollywood works (and after all, the people making this should know all about that subject). It is a little unnerving because of this, which makes it hard to find funny. Do seek it out, though, as you'll see some fine acting. 10 years ago

    I found this movie an absolute delight. Its meta-satirical take on the Hollywood industry was as sobering as it was sidesplitting. A true hidden gem. 3 years 10 months ago

    Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy's For Your Consideration adds another "behind the scenes" movie to their stable, if not necessarily another feather in their cap. "Behind the Scenes of a Movie" is perhaps too obvious an idea, like the genre devouring itself. They don't take the mockumentary road this time, but the result is the same - spoofy characters make fun of an entire industry. The twist is that the movie gets some Oscar buzz, and we see how rumors take on a life of their own. Though the narrative feels a bit lifeless at times - perhaps it's trying to hit too many targets at once - many of its elements, taken in isolation, are either quite funny (the Access Hollywood spoof) or tragic (Catherine O'Hara as the aging actress gives an amazing performance). 6 years 1 month ago
