I don't know what the other reviewers' problem is...
16 May 2010 | by (Leverkusen, Germany, Europe, Planet Earth, The Known Universe!) – See all my reviews

...but I pretty much enjoyed this film.

yes it is influenced by (or even copies from) other pieces such as "The Game"/"The Truman Show" and the lesser known "Tabloid"/"My Little Eye". it is by no means a masterpiece (my vote of 10 was just given to outweigh the unjust all the 1 votes, I actually give it a 7-8).

but to address some points of criticism listed by the other reviewers: the directing is solid, the soundtrack/score is okay, the acting is good enough and even if the story sounds familiar, all of that adds up to a solid piece of entertainment.

its certainly better than many other indie flicks dealing with reality TV shows too, so I doubt you will regret watching it.
