All Critics (9) | Top Critics (8)

A mild, toothless satire - a "Being There'' where there's barely any there there.

With the nimble Greenwood and a kinder, gentler-than-usual Posey in charge, "And Now" proves a thoroughly engaging lark.

To describe "And Now a Word From Our Sponsor" as a one-joke skit stretched well beyond the breaking point isn't entirely fair, because when used ingeniously, which is very seldom, the joke lands.

Always-good Greenwood ambles through on charm and bemusement, but the film is still an idea in search of meaning.

[Greenwood] can't rescue the movie all by himself, but he does at least transform it into a first-rate acting class.

Audience Reviews for And Now A Word From Our Sponsor

This Canadian comedy about a burnt-out ad man who can only speak in product catch phrases is directed by Zack Bernbaum. Starring Bruce Greenwood and Parker Posey, I was expecting something funny or at least deep... but got nothing out of it. From the beginning to the end it was uninspiring, with few good lines which are not enough to keep audience watching, regardless to their IQ.

I love artistic movies with structure, well developed characters in a good screenplay, I don't mind experimenting during directing - but this movie had nothing of all these things. Someone takes your company, your creation and you just answer with stupid ad slogans and shake their hand... well, there were few of annoying scenes like that. The guy is a CEO and cannot answer anything? Very unbelievable. I watched the movie to the end thinking that something will happen and make this film at least watchable. But, never happened!

If you are one of those guys who loves to waste time in life, adores movies with no concept and no real ending, while the decisions of the main character drive you crazy - give it a go! For all others: STAY AWAY!
