      Stephanie Zacharek Salon.com The picture is obviously a satire, but it has no sharpness, no sense of daring. Oct 7, 2006 Full Review Jessica Winter Time Out Aiming at all targets and hitting none of them, the movie is as harmless and inconsequential as a candy cigarette. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Mark Kermode Guardian There's enough bite in the dialogue and performances to provoke a hacking cough of approval, and the laugh-out-loud moments are many, not least in scenes featuring Rob Lowe's unctuous Hollywood agent. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Michael Clark Epoch Times If we were to eliminate and outlaw everything that rubbed someone else’s morals the wrong way, we’d never be able to leave our homes, watch R-rated movies, or consume anything but tap water and a vegan diet. Rated: 4.5/5 Oct 17, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault A fast, bubbly satire that does full justice to the addictive Christopher Buckley novel it’s based on. Rated: B Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com A hilarious, insightful, honest, and endearing film. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 26, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Rob A Funny yet occasionally serious, I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The cast is first rate - which always helps - but so was the script, and Aaron Eckhart (nobody should be that good looking btw) absolutely shines. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review John M Amazing cast, story, brutal truths and jokes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 32 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/11/23 Full Review Connor A This is a good film. Aaron Eckhart gives a good performance and the rest of the cast is good in their roles too. This film is funny, entertaining and has a decent length, worth a watch Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/23 Full Review Max W One of the wittiest, most hilarious movies I've seen in a while. Also funny seeing elon musk's cameo as a chauffeur. Really loved Aaron Eckhart's performance too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Read all reviews
