Hilarious and thoughtful
16 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. Just saw it today at the AFI Film Festival in Hollywood. It's very funny, sweet, and surprisingly emotional. Paul Rudd is excellent in the lead role and the supporting cast are quite good as well.

Because this film deals with the Los Angeles film scene, it probably wouldn't be very appealing to a mainstream audience. Also the subject matter is quite dark and a few people walked out of the screening. Ironically, the people who left did so just as the main character suggests that anyone watching his story (he's a frustrated actor making a documentary of his impending suicide) would probably be running for the aisles at this point because people don't like to think about dark subjects like this!

I won't reveal the ending, but it was quite suspenseful. If you like offbeat comedies and have any sort of appreciation for caricatures of Hollywood personalities, you would probably enjoy this film.
