    This is slight stuff, but the legions of budding Scorseses and Kevin Smiths might actually learn a little something, and they will certainly enjoy a chortle or two -- even if it is at their own expense.

    An Indiewood spoof that's more winning than anyone who wasn't a close friend of the director could possibly expect, R2PC satirizes not only wannabe auteurs but also that overworked genre, the faux documentary, while functioning as a credible study guide for Filmmaking 101.
  3. If you want to make a film, this is a great place to start. But if you just want to watch one, it's more of dead end.
  4. 40
    Hugely smug and annoying.
  5. 40
    The intentionally self-conscious style of R2PC is a little hard to take sometimes because the movie is trying too hard to be funny.
  6. A pointless, wincingly snide exercise.
