Okay, first of all, Mr. Director, you are NOT Christopher Guest. I can see where you were going with this, but unfortunately the end product was lackluster at best.
Right off the bat: the packaging was incredibly misleading. There were no references to this being a "mockumentary," or fake in any way. We rented the DVD in the hopes we'd found an interesting and original documentary on the darker side of comedy. Boy were we surprised.
The acting was okay, I suppose, but being a comic myself I just found most of this film excruciating to sit through. Just because you put actors on screen with lines that a bad comic might say, doesn't mean those very lines are then funny. This was by far one of the worst films I've seen in a long time.
Now it did have some positives. A few of the lines / gags were funny, but by and large I found it impossible to sit through. I actually turned the film off before the end. I tried. I really did. But much like trying to slit my wrist with a spork, the going was slow and just too damned painful.
Stay away from this movie.
