Film Review: "For Your Consideration"

It opened--and rightfully closed-a while ago. The film is a spoof of actors and their Academy Award hysteria. That is promising premise; and the film assembles an accomplished cast of talented farceur actors; but...the film is ultimately an in-joke'--so 'in', it implodes. All is leaves is a black hole in comedy. Sad...Christopher Guest, the director and co-writer, is generally a funny man. It is probably the shortest film of the year. I counted an hour, twenty minutes. It felt a lot longer.

"And the envelope, please..." Empty.
