Film Comment - 09/01/2008
"Robert De Niro gives his most natural, non-self-parodying performance in a decade as the Linson figure Ben, striking a fine balance of cosmopolitan bemusement, low-intensity terror, and almost-controlled, repeatedly displaced jealousy."
Total Film - 11/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "Its universe is a cracked mirror of Hollywood....Robert De Niro is ideally suited to playing his harassed alter-ego Ben..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/24/2008
"[The film] has dryly obscene, laugh-out-loud lines, and its portrait of Hollywood as a giant anxiety attack is fused by De Niro, who musters a desperate, nagging warmth beneath his grumbly facade." -- Grade: B
USA Today - 10/17/2008
"The performances are good (some scarily realistic), and the movie is enjoyable....W. is absorbing and amusing to ruminate over."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2008
"De Niro's effortless, engaging performance -- striding around trying to please everyone...ensures that Levinson's film is a more affectionate kick in Tinseltown's ribs."
Rolling Stone - 11/30/2008
"Willis is a hoot as a nightmare version of himself. There are funny scenes, nicely directed by Barry Levinson."
Premiere - 02/23/2009
"If you're into the behind-the-scenes working of Hollywood, then you'll enjoy it; It's really keyed into the insecurity and tenuous nature of showbiz; De Niro is solid as usual..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/27/2009
"[De Niro] shines as a frazzled producer who two exes and a pair of celluloid nightmares....The message is: Everyone in Hollywood lies...mostly to themselves."
