  • Critic Reviews of "The Big Picture"

    Chicago Reader
    February 02, 2016

    [A] hilariously canny 1989 satire about contemporary filmmaking in Hollywood.

    March 11, 2009

    Befitting two of the co-authors of This is Spinal Tap, Guest and Michael McKean, The Big Picture displays a keen eye for the silliness of film biz customs, lingo and attitudes.

    The movie references may strike some as in-jokey, but Guest's likeable film has enough jaundiced sideswipes and lighter chuckles to see it through its slacker spells.

    New York Times
    August 30, 2004

    A consistently genial, intermittently funny send-up of the current Hollywood scene as demonstrated by the rise and fall of an award-winning film student.

    Rolling Stone
    May 12, 2001

    You keep rooting for this Hollywood sendup to make it, even as the bad ideas start gaining on the good.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    March 21, 2016

    A genial and funny satire/comedy about an up-and-coming student filmmaker.

    People Magazine
    February 02, 2016

    Partly romance, partly fantasy, partly satire on what passes for life in Hollywood -- and all charm -- this movie even has a perfect title.

    TV Guide
    February 02, 2016

    A failed attempt to spoof the wheelers and dealers behind the scenes in Hollywood.
    April 09, 2007

    Sometimes hilarious, sometimes chilling anti-Hollywood comedy.
    November 20, 2005

    Very slight, but it hits most of its Hollywood targets with a certain degree of savvy.

    Apollo Guide
    October 29, 2003

    The Movie Machine is skewered and lampooned with an impressive accuracy, but it never crosses the line into becoming an outright bash.

    Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

    If only it was as clever as it believes itself to be.
