A good comedy (and I hadn't said that in a while)...
13 May 2005 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

What can be said about "New suit"? What can be said about "New Suit" inside "New Suit"? What can be said about the people around "New Suit" in this movie called "New Suit"? While this constant words repetition may sound stupid, it's just silliness. I'm playing with the movie's plot; which involves a frustrated writer, who has a girlfriend who works in Hollywood (and so does he), and invents the name of a script and a screenwriter, because he is tired of hypocrisy in the business. The name of this script, you already know it.

What you don't know and haven't seen in a while is this story. You haven't seen the creation of this people's own "Hollywood", and what happens in it. An awkward mix of professionals and inexperienced try to show the "experienced" world to us with a surprising result. The fact that this movie is fun comes from the notable, but not exaggerated, ridicule of Hollywood world. With his first screenplay, screenwriter Craig Sherman came up with a world inside a film studio; where he developed his characters.

Kevin Taylor (Jordan Phillips) is a worker in this cinematographic studio; he got the work after he dropped writing…He was positioned close to Muster Hansau (Dan Hedaya); the studio's producer; his inspiration. There's also a lot of companions there for him: Juan (Benito Martinez), Andy (Dan Montgomery Jr.), Girard (Andrew Ableson) and the bosses (stupid also); Molly (Heather Donahue) and Smokey (Mark Setlock). There are more characters, of course, but you'll get to know their personalities also. Kevin then finished his relationship with Marianne (Marisa Coughlan), and what I said before happens…Sooner than they realize, Marianne and Kevin are having fun, François Velle is having fun, and we are having fun! With some editing problems, soft score, and simple shots (with not much quality) leading to a tranquil direction; Velle managed to work perfectly with his inexperienced actors (not all of them were inexperienced, of course. This gives credit to Sherman's script, so well developed and believable: I really wanted things to go right for everyone here… I was talking about the actors (they're so many)… Jordan Bridges (Kevin) emerges as a natural, dominating each of his lines with confidence. He comes from a family of actors; nephew of Jeff Bridges, son of Beau Bridges…Marisa Coughlan (Marianne) gets to play the predictable and tiring "bitch" character: she succeeds, but I hope that's not the only role she can play. Heather Donahue (Molly) doesn't have the necessity of showing acting abilities. She just puts faces and stands there wisely. Andrew Ableson (Smokey) doesn't need to act much either, but he manages to create funny moments in the appropriate times. Benito Martinez (Juan) is outstanding and original with his manners and voice tones; a great future's ahead of him. The most surprising character, even when he didn't do much, was Dan Montgomery's Andy; so subtle and unexpectedly funny. The irregular and experienced Dan Hedaya (Muster Hansau) is reduced to the usual clichés, and not capable of giving something more. Interesting to talk also about ER's Paul McCrane, who's Braggy is so intimidating and laughable; with an Asian girl that tells him about good and bad waves and how to things. Or Muster Hansau, who can only look for a script when his prostitute tells him. As all of this was happening, I wondered several times: "Could this really happen?". For other reasons, I came to the conclusion it didn't matter.

The ending of the movie is rarely unpredictable and unexpected; although it comes totally unsatisfying. When the ride finishes, it prepares you for another ride. With laughs and great development moments, I liked the first ride, but I wouldn't join in for the second time…I'm glad the second ride didn't come.
