Rating: 4/5 -- Fab small-town spoof; subtle humor may bore kids. Full Review
Common Sense Media
Jan 1, 2011
Rating: 4/5 -- The songs (co-written by Guest and Tapster Harry Shearer) are suitably ridiculous and the deadpan gags come thick, fast and too numerous to mention, all delivered with knuckle-gnawing subtlety by the C-list cast with A-list style. Full Review

Priceless.
Rolling Stone
May 11, 2001
The comedy has the slow burn of a richly nuanced and non-judgmental character study. Full Review
Time Out
Jan 26, 2006
Rating: 3/4 -- A very funny, very unusual ensemble comedy that falls somewhere between slapdash and brilliant, an improvised comedy with more hits than misses.
Globe and Mail
Apr 12, 2002
Rating: 4/5 -- Trabalhando em um subgênero que praticamente ajudou a crier (o do pseudocumentário), Guest cria mais um filme que diverte por compreender tão bem seu tema e seus personagens.

Description by OLDIES.com:

A town of Blaine, Missouri is preparing for celebrations of its 150th anniversary. Corky St.Clair, an off-off-off-off-off-Broadway director, is putting together an amateur theater show about the town's history, starring a local dentist, a couple of travel agents, a Dairy Queen waitress, and a car repairman. He invites a Broadway theater critic Mr. Guffman to see the opening night of the show.
