Clever Concept, Poor Execution
18 June 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Not a bad idea...take a character so wrapped up in TV that she sees her life as just one big TV show...but aside from the cutaways, and the opening credits, the execution never seemed realized. There was a really great Terry Gilliam riff, SNL cut image, Simpsons riff, etc., but it ends up just coming across as a gimmick compared to the actual story. Combine that with poor production values (LOTS of one-take scenes), and you get an unenjoyable movie. The DVD, however, provides a commentary worth listening to for aspiring filmmakers. Colin Mochrie and Debra Wilson have enjoyable cameos, but Wil Wheaton is an anchor on the whole movie.
