Did You Know?

Trivia

Steven Soderbergh attached the following list of rules to the screenplay to his low budget ($2 M) film with a huge list of stars:
  • 1. All sets are practical locations.


  • 2. You will drive yourself to the set. If you are unable to drive yourself, a driver will pick you up, but you will probably become the subject of ridicule. Either way, you must arrive alone.


  • 3. There will be no craft service, so you should arrive on set "having had". Meals will vary in quality.


  • 4. You will pick, provide, and maintain your own wardrobe.


  • 5. You will create and maintain your own hair and make-up.


  • 6. There will be no trailers. The company will attempt to provide holding areas near a given location, but don't count on it. If you need to be alone a lot, you're pretty much screwed.


  • 7. Improvisation will be encouraged.


  • 8. You will be interviewed about your character. This material may end up in the film.


  • 9. You will be interviewed about the other characters. This material may end up in the finished film.


  • 10. You will have fun whether you want to or not. If any of these guidelines are problematic for you, stop reading now and send this screenplay back where it came from.

That don't impress me much
20 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Too dreary to work as a satire, too wrapped up in its own cleverness to engage; this is an insubstantial vanity piece that might have been entertaining to make but isn't much fun to watch. I'd have thought that if Soderbergh wanted to show off, he could have come up with something better than this collection of over-scripted (and not particularly original) gimmicks.

It might have worked had we spent more time in the company of the interesting peripheral characters (the theatrical Hitler, Gus the producer) than listening to the self-absorbed droning of the others. Film students will probably love it.
