In the comedic farce Soapdish, the behind-the-scenes lives of several soap opera actors are just as melodramatic as those of their television counterparts. Sally Field stars as Celeste Talbert, the star of a declining TV show. To make matters worse, Talbert's career is thrown into turmoil when her rival, Montana Moorehead (Cathy Moriarty), tries to persuade producer David Barnes (Robert Downey Jr.) to write Talbert off the show. Smitten by Moorehead, Barnes comes up with a scheme to get Talbert

Soapdish aims at a satiric target as big as a Macy's float and intermittently hits it.
This movie certainly has its dopey moments, but if you're feeling indulgent you're likely to have a good time with it.
It's a kick to see Field sending up her sweetheart image.
Soapdish is pure joy, a lemon-fresh spoof of daytime drama that does the dishing and may even soften your hands.
Soapdish is a flurry of activity without a dedicated core, neutering displays of slapstick and the force of the satiric crescent kick.
Not as funny as the real thing and unlikely to be anywhere near as successful as the leading real-life exponents of the art.
A funny, sharply-written film more pertinent in the Noughties than it was upon its first release.
Starts off funny, ends up ludicrously funny. Recommended.
