This week's reviewed movie is:
For Your Consideration




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



For Your Consideration is a very funny movie about a troupe of B Hollywood actors making a straight-faced low-budget drama with running jokes, nutty characters, and satire, which they milk to the bone.

They use the characters to mock the Hollywood film industry and ridicule the insanity of the whole entertainment scene.

I found it just full of fun stuff all the way.

This may not be the strongest of Christopher Guest's films, but it still provides some hearty laughs, mostly in the form of Fred Willard's Entertainment Tonight send up.

Its insider Hollywood jokes may be missed by some, but all and all still beats most current cinema by a mile.

I enjoyed it!

For Your Consideration is a spoof comedy about inside Hollywood types who become overly excited when the movie they're shooting begins to generate Oscar buzz.

It is largely improvisational, only the film-within-the-film was scripted.
