[Director Christoper Guest] finds the absurd (and shares in the discovery with his cast) but always sees some human, tender truth behind the laugh lines. As a result, For Your Consideration is certainly worth your consideration.
Much of the funniest material is mined from the attendant media hoopla drummed up by the vacuous hosts of an "Entertainment Tonight"-style show hosted by predictably hilarious Fred Willard and Jane Lynch.
Like Guest's other films, For Your Consideration is extremely funny and tinged with sadness and disappointment, the kind that accompanies all of our inevitable adjustments to dreams deferred and downsized.
[The film] may contain as many riffs on ego, self-deception and corporate greed as Guest's directorial debut, but it also possesses something rarely seen from the director: a shocking degree of unforgiving misanthropy.
Truly, the level of tender, ruthless, inspired, lethally accurate study that has gone into the follicular expression of each and every character in Christopher Guest's latest hilarious cultural corrective is something inspiring to behold.
