While on some level, He's Way More Famous Than You successfully skewers the cult of celebrity and the entertainment business, it ultimately marginalizes itself from the audience because of the un-likability of the leading character.
| Original Score: 5.9/10
The screenplay never meshes its ideas into one satirical story or even a series of sketches with individually coherent points. A little meta goes a long, long way.
| Original Score: 2/4
It would have been nice if the film had surrendered to its lunacy more blatantly, more carelessly.
Feiffer sometimes gets snagged on the look-at-me nature of her meta-performance, veering from pathological to pathetic, and not always in the best way.
| Original Score: 2/5
Self-pity, self-parody and self-destruction are blurred to cringe-inducing effect in He's Way More Famous Than You.
A self-referential, insider farce about the hunger for Hollywood stardom, He's Way More Famous Than You is-like its leading lady-as unhinged as it is hilarious.
This frenetic movie has moments of wit, and Ms. Feiffer, a seasoned screen and Broadway performer, has range, stamina and charisma.
| Original Score: 3/5
The farce is so light on its feet that it's buoyant.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Anything-goes, loopily autobiographical romp about the travails of a desperate actress it would be a nightmare to encounter in real life. But haven't we all, on some level?
