A well constructed satire comedy with an amazing performance by Lynn Redgrave
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All I could say when I saw this movie is "What the Hell?" I loved it. It was a perfect satire on "Hollywood". The clichés were so over-the-top, that it was ridiculous, and Lynn Redgrave's performance was impeccable. She was so specific with her character and so convicted, she looked like another person; and she was hilarious. She's such a bad girl; a very bad bad girl. I was surprised to see low rating for this movie. I think most people just don't get it. The movie is supposed to look cheesy, cheap, artificial, and over the top, and therein lies the art. And I feel that there's also a good connection because of Lynn Redgrave. Her character was so specific and eccentric, yet emotional and connected that she looked like a real f*%&%d up person. She was nuts and hilarious! I still laugh whenever I visualize "Midnight's" face. Definitely cult worthy.
