  1. If you can watch it without weeping over your own predicament, you'll see some serious talent bursting out.

    Even naysayers of reality TV’s simplistic structure, which the film openly borrows, may find themselves rooting for a couple of choice -- and having fun in the process. The real-estate game can actually be a laughing matter when you’re not a contestant.

    While far from the cream of the mockumentary crop, it's still a pleasant diversion.

    Would have worked better if it had stuck more closely to real estate as the source and target of satire.

    A spoof, sometimes a funny one, and sometimes just plain overkill.

    Closing Escrow can't even execute the bare-bones requirements of mediocre mockumentaries, as its unbelievably quirky characters' not-funny behavior is punctuated with awkward silences and L.A. clichés.

    Closing Escrow is more of a spoof than a 'mocumentary...' I found it funny.

    The actors are all extremely talented and brought believability to the material.
