For Your Consideration

from Film Forum, 12/07/06

Christopher Guest and his team of gifted improvisational comedians have been responsible for several of the funniest movies of the last ten years—Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind.

In each of those films, a colorful group of comical characters participates in a big public exhibition—whether it's a play, a dog show, or a concert. The latest feature, For Your Consideration, is styled like a documentary about an independent film project, which suddenly finds itself earning Oscar buzz.

Frederica Matthewes-Green (, originally in The National Review) says, "Fans of Guest's recent films will find plenty of the same character-based absurdities here. It's hilarious. Right up until the last fifteen minutes. … [I]t's a movie that ends on a down note—even with a flash of cruelty, which leaves a sour taste. Until that point, though, it's consistently funny. Inside Christopher Guest there is a parodist, a musician, an actor, a director, a writer, and a wild card. You never know which one is going to show up."

Mainstream reviewers don't like it as much as Guffman and Best.
