Review Although Guest is the unquestioned King of the Mockumentaries, with For Your Consideration, he steps back from his trademark approach. For Your Consideration is a satire, but it's not set up as a faux documentary. Instead, this send up of the movie industry is constructed as a series of largely improvised you-are-there scenes interspersed with fake TV clips...For Your Consideration has plenty of great one-liners and contains strong individual scenes (a tribute to the comedic aptitude of those involved). Catherine O'Hara is wonderful as an aging actress worried about appearing too old or haggard, even though her character is dying. Eugene Levy is hilarious as a clueless publicist. And Ricky Gervais has a small but memorable turn as a studio head who "suggests" the title be changed to Home for Thanksgiving to "tone down the Jewishness."

Review The king of the mockumentary is back. Christopher Guest, This Is Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel and the leading wit behind Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind, returns after a three-year absence to bite the Hollywood hand that feeds him with For Your Consideration...For Your Consideration is amusing, but it is slight. Even though this is a more traditional narrative than Guest's previous mockumentaries, it is still dependent on interviews within the movie to move the story along, and the formula has just grown tired. A Mighty Wind was not as good as Waiting for Guffman or Best in Show, and this is not as good as A Mighty Wind. That it is still far funnier than most of what passes for movie comedy these days is a sad reflection on the industry. But we've come to expect more from Guest.

Box Office Magazine ...chockfull of the low-key charm, smart performances and understated humor that characterize Guest's work...
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly ...Guest's latest hilarious cultural corrective is something inspiring to behold.
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter ...outrageously hilarious...delivered with comic precision by Guest's crack repertory company...
Nathan Lee, The Village Voice weird and whimsical an invention as Guest's "Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show," or "A Mighty Wind."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone ...O'Hara is comic perfection...O'Hara deserves Oscar consideration in her funniest, fiercest role.
