This isn't a movie meant to inspire much reflection. It aims to entertain and that it does.

For Your Consideration is not Guest at his best, but it's still an enjoyable way to spend a few hours and the company you'll keep is memorable enough.

While they do pull a few punches (to the detriment of the story), there are enough laughs and great performances to rescue the film from the dustbin.

Isn't quite as on-target as [Guest's] previous efforts, but his talented troupe again delivers more giddy laughs than just about any other comedy out there.

For Your Consideration may be a little too insider-ish for viewers unfamiliar with the very real workings of awards hype. However, if you follow such things, there are plenty of knowing laughs to be found.

Along with his writing partner Levy - the only man who can be upstaged by his own eyebrows - Guest is dealing in cheap shots and broad strokes.

May be a small jewel but it is certainly better value than half the biggies around just now.

Easily the funniest film I've seen this year. DON'T MISS IT.

In the running for the 'Best Rethink Of An Established Formula' award, so we'd like to thank the director and his cast for keeping the chortles coming.

The comedy is very unsubtle, and huge swathes of screen-time are given over to Fred Willard as a presenter on a dumb entertainment TV show - funny, yes, but not funny enough to justify the vast amount of time he is given.

In the most bittersweet of ironies, O'Hara was tipped by some as a potential Oscar nominee for her performance in the film. You suspect that she handled the whole demeaning circus with rather more dignity than her character does.

True, Hollywood's not difficult to caricature, but For Your Consideration is more than willing to savage the hand that feeds it.

We expect oddball wit of a higher calibre from Guest and co., although their inherent, zany likeability means plenty of laughs.

Funny, biting, cutting and satirical %u2026 but there are fewer laughs than expected; more likely to appeal to cult audiences interested in film industry in-jokes.

Let's start the Internet buzz right now - we want an O-nod for O'Hara.

For Your Consideration is a funny movie, albeit a minor one alongside Guest's other comedies.

Guest and his troupe are clearly having fun poking fun at the industry that pays their bills while psychologically messing with them.

Is there a better group of actors today than Christopher Guest's troupe of improv players?
