For Your Consideration is not Guest at his best, but it's still an enjoyable way to spend a few hours and the company you'll keep is memorable enough.

Improv master Guest takes on Tinseltown.

Aside from an occasional chuckle, For Your Consideration is banal and, worst of all, frequently annoying.
Full Review | Original Score: 34/100

The blunt of derision ends up falling not on the shallowness of the system but on the pathetic souls who thought something would come out of it

The point is that Hollywood types are--gasp!--shallow. If that news shocks anyone, check your pulse, because you may have been in a coma for 80 years.

The film-within-a-film narrative device falls flat because the inner story is a melodrama with no comic momentum of its own.

The problem with FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION is that it breaks the cardinal rule of comedy: it just isn't funny.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

While they do pull a few punches (to the detriment of the story), there are enough laughs and great performances to rescue the film from the dustbin.

I would rather stay home and watch TV than walk across the street to watch this movie for free.

Guest stretched himself a little thin this time, as For Your Consideration is not quite up to his usual standards.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Isn't quite as on-target as [Guest's] previous efforts, but his talented troupe again delivers more giddy laughs than just about any other comedy out there.

For Your Consideration may be a little too insider-ish for viewers unfamiliar with the very real workings of awards hype. However, if you follow such things, there are plenty of knowing laughs to be found.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Along with his writing partner Levy - the only man who can be upstaged by his own eyebrows - Guest is dealing in cheap shots and broad strokes.

May be a small jewel but it is certainly better value than half the biggies around just now.

The best jokes are the true jokes, and truth has not been best served here.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Easily the funniest film I've seen this year. DON'T MISS IT.

Would have been much better as a 30-minute TV show, with not enough of a plot for a full film.

In the running for the 'Best Rethink Of An Established Formula' award, so we'd like to thank the director and his cast for keeping the chortles coming.

Guest goes for big, crude laughs every step of the way, and only a few of them come off.
Peter Bradshaw
February 9, 2007
The comedy is very unsubtle, and huge swathes of screen-time are given over to Fred Willard as a presenter on a dumb entertainment TV show - funny, yes, but not funny enough to justify the vast amount of time he is given.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
