Trivia

Originally a one-woman played written and performed by 'Lynne Adams', called "Two Faced". She wanted her sister, 'Brooke Adams', to play the leading role in the movie, so she wrote in a role for herself. She also created a role for her brother-in-law, Tony Shalhoub, who directed the film.

Fresh take on mockumentaries and women seem to love it.
6 July 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Women over 40 treat "Made Up" like a religious event. They come away raving about how someone finally made a movie for and about them. Not being in that demographic, I don't have the same feelings, but I can see what they mean. Doesn't this group deserve a movie or two of their own?

Lynne and Brook Adams give solid performances as sisters whose relationship is strained when one makes a documentary of the other's life. Director Tony Shaloub makes a small role into one of the brightest parts of an otherwise dark comedy. The real standouts in the cast are Eva Amurri and Light Eternity. Both provide memorable performances.

Mockumentaries are beginning to feel played out, but Made Up finds some new ground by making the hapless filmmakers central characters. Hidden cameras--and the idea of hiding cameras--provide some of the movie's best laughs.

There are certainly missteps in this film. It feels a bit long at 90 minutes. The central character lacks a clear goal--something that's even mentioned within the film. And the movie feels more like it stops than ends. But it is more enjoyable than most studio product, and it provides a few great moments plus real standout performances by Amurri and Eternity. And, if you're a woman over 40, expect to find Enlightenment.
