You keep rooting for this Hollywood sendup to make it, even as the bad ideas start gaining on the good. Full Review
Rolling Stone

The movie references may strike some as in-jokey, but Guest's likeable film has enough jaundiced sideswipes and lighter chuckles to see it through its slacker spells. Full Review

...A surprisingly genial, good-natured satire on contemporary Hollywood mores....Bacon and Emily Longstreth are appealing...
Variety

Rating: 3.5/5 -- A consistently genial, intermittently funny send-up of the current Hollywood scene as demonstrated by the rise and fall of an award-winning film student.
New York Times

Partly romance, partly fantasy, partly satire on what passes for life in Hollywood -- and all charm -- this movie even has a perfect title. Full Review

Befitting two of the co-authors of This is Spinal Tap, Guest and Michael McKean, The Big Picture displays a keen eye for the silliness of film biz customs, lingo and attitudes. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Very slight, but it hits most of its Hollywood targets with a certain degree of savvy.

Product Description:

After winning the National Film Institute's Award for Best student Film, filmmaker Nick Chapman (Kevin Bacon) jumps headlong into the Hollywood fast-lane. There, he receives a warm welcome from studio executives who have heard he's the hottest thing in town. But before long, predatory producers, aggravating agents, and avant-garde artists are turning his world upside down by trying to hitch a ride on his supposedly rising star--which helps him to realize the horrible truth about the backward system that created his meteoric rise. Christopher Guest's (THIS IS SPINAL TAP) directorial debut skewers the Hollywood system, with ample help from a comedically gifted cast including Martin Short, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and John Cleese.
