Watts and Coffey may have vaulted Hollywood's gated enclaves, but this affectionate film shows they haven't forgotten, nor idealized, their days among the ranks of the struggling and ambitious.
80
Ellie Parker is at once hilarious and harrowing, and in being so, seems right on target.
70
L.A. Weekly
Fun, scattershot Hollywood spoof.
60
Film Threat
A rare pleasure.
50
A splendid idea for a film goes largely wasted despite a brave performance by Naomi Watts as a struggling actress trying to figure it all out in Hollywood.
50
Village Voice
A clumsy spoof of Hollywood, EP always roots for its hapless heroine. But where this trifle fascinates most is in its connections to David Lynch's masterpiece.
50
For Ms. Watts, it is a small, brave acting tour de force.
40
Variety
Without Watts, Scott Coffey's feature-length expansion of his identically titled short wouldn't amount to much.
25
New York Daily News
Shot on digital video, made on the run whenever Watts was available between gigs, the movie is a pointless, tedious eyesore.
25
New York Post
Naomi Watts is the only explanation for the existence of the student-y digital video feature Ellie Parker.
