I laughed out loud more often here than I did during Christopher Guest's previous films. I enjoy all of his 'improv' movies, but I found this one to be the funniest.

Mr. Guest, as someone who considers himself a huge fan of your movies, I implore you to return to the mockumentary format for your next picture! The improv and the eccentric characters just didn't work quite as well here.

This one's not as good as the other Christopher Guest films and ranks near the bottom for me. Their last movie (A Mighty Wind) was much funnier than expected so this one wasn't that funny to me. Highlights, Parker Posey with Katharine Hepburn-like hair and a character played by Jennifer Coolidge.

Not as good as Best In Show, but at least as good as Waiting For Guffman. More Jewish than both films combined!

Seriously consider not seeing this

For Your Consideration is a boring, vein and mostly unwatchable satire; it’s a big step down from A Mighty Wind (Christopher Guest’s previous cinematic venture), perhaps because his style has changed. Up until now, his films have taken a sort of mocumentary approach, but for this flick he has opted to tell it straight.

The best that can be said about the movie is nearly all of his regular group of improv actors appear somewhere in the movie: Morley Orfkin (Eugene Levy) is a terrible agent to actor, Victor Allen Miller (Harry Shearer) and is constantly advising his client to appear in bad infomercials or fast food commercials. Miller’s latest film project, Home for Purim, also stars Callie Webb (Parker Posey), Brian Chubb (Christopher Moynihan), and Marilyn Hack (Catherine O’Hara). Hom...
