    You may want to revisit this profanely hilarious Hollywood satire. . .just to catch the zingers the audience often drowns out with laughter. Hollywood corrupts absolutely, and Mamet turns the toxic process into the year's best and smartest comedy.
  2. A quintessentially wised-up insider comedy, ideally cast and filled with sharp writing from start to finish.
  3. 88
    Hilarious sweet and sour David Mamet comedy.

    Good clean dirty fun.

    It's Mamet in a lighthearted mood, playing with dialogue, repeating phrases just because he likes them, and supplying us with a closing line that achieves, I think, a kind of greatness.
  6. His (Mamet) direction is unobtrusive, unflashy, and always willing to allow the hilarious cast all the room it needs.
  7. A surprisingly unpolished piece of work that plays as though it were written for the stage and only slightly modified for the screen.
