Rating: 3/4 -- Frequently funny -- sometimes very funny indeed. Full Review
This 1997 comedy may be amusing if you feel a pressing need to feel superior to somebody, but the aim is too broad and scattershot to add up to much beyond an acknowledgment of small-town desperation. Full Review
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
Rating: A -- A madcap gem. Full Review
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.
Cinema em Cena
Rating: B+ -- Raucous, outrageously funny, and filled with many zany scenes. Full Review

He invites a Broadway theater critic Mr. Guffman to see the opening night of the show.
