One of those instances where the movie poster is more interesting than the actual movie, See This Movie bites the big one. The cast includes SNL head writer Seth Meyers, who belongs behind the Weekend Update desk where he can use his acerbic and bitter wit in the way that the moronic and plain scipt for this film couldn't touch. John Cho, always perfectly sardonic, plays a small part as a flilm producer underused, much like his role. Jessalyn Gilsig of Nip/Tuck and Glee fame puts on a lopsided French-Canadian accent while kissing every man she sees. The humor was benign, and uninspiring, while the concept merited a better written script. With the low budget of an indie flick I understand the need to make it semi-mockumentary, but this was a case of go big or go home, and the director couldn't choose between the two.
For some reason this movie doesn't feel as tedious as it should, and for that you have to give it credit. There's definitely enough amusement to make it worth watching.
It's the story of the making of a movie within a movie about a movie that doesn't actually exist.....and if you followed that you stand a good chance of actually liking this. The script and performances are both funny, and while the end result is basically a college film that managed to get produced by big-time people, that in no way keeps this from being a good film.
