      Anthony Lane New Yorker The movie goes on too long, and the ending is milked too heavily for irony, but it makes you sit up and watch—it’s serious fun. Apr 24, 2023 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek You keep rooting for Jimmy Hollywood, because it has the bittersweet, unexpected flavors of a personal vision. It may not be Hollywood's idea of a socko entertainment, but, unlike many a hit, it follows you home. Apr 10, 2018 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: D Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Jeff Simon Buffalo News It's an entertaining movie but Joe Pesci, as Jimmy, may be the worst bit of casting that master caster Levinson has ever done. Rated: 3/5 Feb 29, 2024 Full Review Malcolm Johnson Hartford Courant Levinson plays wryly on the way actors, even those without work, live their roles. Apr 10, 2018 Full Review Daniel M.

      Audience Member 4.0 What was not to like about this movie I don’t get the hate ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/16/22 Full Review Audience Member An underrated comedy with Joe Pesci and Christian Slater, who both had terrific chemistry and pulled it off very smoothly together in this film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review william s This movie is a poopcrap movie.....stooooooopid. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's rather low-budget, but Joe Pesci is always good. Definitely worth a watch, but don't go in expecting Pesci at his best. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Looking at the reviews, I come to the conclusion that nobody saw the same film that I did. This movie is a lot of fun, Joe Pesci gives one of his best comedic performances here, and Christian Slater is actually pretty good as Jimmy's sidekick William. Jimmy Hollywood was definitely a welcome return to form for Barry Levinson after his Toys debacle. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Suck it off the floor.
