For Your Consideration

When veteran actors Marilyn Hack and Victor Alan Miller (Catherine Oā€™Hara, Harry Shearer) are working on a movie together, they learn that their performances are generating Oscar buzz for the first time ever in their careers.Ā Christopher Guest and his usual collaborators deliver another mockumentary, but they probably object to that term because it’s obvious how warmly they must feel for these struggling characters. Hollywood is the target this time and following the stars, agents, producers and air-headed entertainment reporters is certainly amusing, but sadly there isn’t much here to earn big laughs, in spite of a great cast.

2006-U.S. 86 min. Color. Directed byĀ Christopher Guest. Screenplay: Christopher Guest, Eugene Levy. Cast: Catherine Oā€™Hara (Marilyn Hack), Harry Shearer (Victor Alan Miller), Parker Posey (Callie Webb), Christopher Guest, Fred Willard, Jane Lynch… Bob Balaban, Michael McKean, Eugene Levy, Ed Begley, Jr., Ricky Gervais, Sandra Oh, John Krasinski.
