a decent film, just one that's hard to take seriously

Economical, slick, entertaining, and only 5 people in my audience? Inexcusable. Go see it.

'New Suit's' satire works well; its characters are engaging, and the film comes across as sweetly amusing.

An acidic satire that transcends its one-joke premise to skewer, with a fair amount of accuracy and great, biting humor, the emptiness of so much contemporary moviemaking.

An enjoyable film that's nonetheless flawed.

Velle ... brings a perceptive outsider's view to the world of contemporary Hollywood that catches all the nuances of hypocrisy.

This sort of thing has been done better ... but it's still pretty entertaining.

Doesn't have much new to say about Hollywood.

There have been plenty of sendups and self-satires about the insanity inside the Hollywood machine, and this one doesn't add enough new curves.

A good-spirited comedy that's a real charmer.

(Craig) Sherman solidly sets a counterpoint to the comedy, by creating a palpable whiff of desperation emanating from everyone concerned

An oddly sweet and effective satire.

It's funny and has an interesting edge of bitterness to it.

Velle takes a high-concept script from Craig Sherman and makes an enjoyable -- if disappointingly shallow -- coming- of-age story set in Tinseltown.

An old story, The Emperor's New Clothes turned inside out, but screenwriter Craig Sherman and director Francois Velle have such fun with the material that it's completely contagious.

It's strangely unsatisfying, a Hollywood tattletale best suited as a subplot to some yet-to-be-made Woody Allen film.

Instead of the bitter satire that could have been made from the exact same script, they have chosen to make a bright, airy comedy.

More chastising swipe than vicious satire, the nicely cast, well executed New Suit achieves success through modesty of scale.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Snappy and smart, the film gets surprisingly far on a fairly contrived conceit, proving that there's no energy quite like energy fueled by anger and disgust .

Too safe and solipsistic to be anything but a cheery, self-satisfied time-waster.
