  1. If only for the comedy glory of Sigourney Weaver as a TV network president who confuses acid reflux with gut instinct, this very smart, very funny movie about the making of a network sitcom is a cut-glass gem of a showbiz conceit.
  2. Weaver is hilarious and horrifying.
  3. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    A tart, smart, closely observed satire of the television industry.

    A shameless ripoff of "For Your Consideration" which was equally annoying. A typical Hollywood inside joke on the rest of us, only it backfired, because the joke was on them for being so arrogant. What a waste of time and money! Full Review »

    Sharp, clever, funny, on-the-mark satire, giving insight as to what is wrong with modern day TV.

    Saw this absolutly pitch perfect satire last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, I'm so happy it is getting a wider audience. Great Hollywood satire with an awesome cast. Sigourney Weaver Steals the show as a Ari-Gold-esque tv executive who is given some of the best one liners in recent history. A must see. Full Review »
