Never quite pins down what fame is supposed to mean.

Not once does she reveal anything personal to us. She soon becomes whiny, high-strung and pretentious. We begin to wish that we had some aspirin of our own.

Carlo Cavagna

smugly self-congratulatory... shooting fish in a barrel

SPLICEDWire what seems to be a curse suffered by most mockumentaries, none of it is particularly memorable.

While the script makes many astute observations and the performers are game, "Lisa Picard Is Famous" comes across as slight as the marginal characters it portrays.

As amusing and sharply performed as it is, Lisa Picard quickly grows thin and dull.

Likable but not exceptional.

The film is a lot like its heroine: cocksure and half-cocked all at once.

Feels like what it is: an improvised comedy bit that two friends came up with.

Comes down to two sorely limited and rapidly tiresome characters.

Mostly harmless and slightly silly.

The result is often quite funny, without ever managing to say anything especially new or perceptive about fame and the culture of celebrity.

Lisa Picard Is Famous is to film what Off Off Broadway is to theater.

An empty-headed mockumentary about celebrity that makes you appreciate all the more the talents of Christopher Guest.

A marshmallow-soft satire that eventually peters out into sticky near-melodrama.
