75
Self-indulgent and admirable.
75
New York Daily News
The result is a funny, tender, satisfying blend of fiction and cinema vérité.
70
A bittersweet, wryly amusing "dramatic fiction"
60
The New York Times
Good-natured, mildly appealing video feature.
60
Successfully amalgamates Henry Jaglom's Hollywood-home-movie aesthetic, ego-skewering satire, and a measured understanding of the kinship between love and risk.
50
Pressma's intermittently amusing screenplay, some good-natured cameos by a bunch of his famous friends, and an intelligent performance by Chess - playing herself opposite TV regular Alan Rosenberg -- save the day and the relationship.
40
The A.V. Club
A vanity project about a vanity project.
38
New York Post
Self-indulgent folly.
25
Entertainment Weekly
The only metatwist missing in the twittering self-regard of this indulgent home movie is the participation of a documentary video crew -- ideally helmed by some TV exec's USC-grad son -- shooting the filmmakers shooting the play within the play.
25
The resulting movie is a nauseating flight of Hollywood navel-gazing.
