Critic Reviews for Pittsburgh
Jeff Goldblum's willingness to take a chance on something different and the way he sticks to it is the real charm of 'Pittsburgh.'
Singularly unique... one of the more enjoyable motion pictures I've come across in recent months
Audience Reviews for Pittsburgh
This is quite a funny mockumentary reminding me why I used to enjoy seeing the name Jeff Goldblum on a cast list. Here he plays himself, Jeff Goldblum, with the sudden desire to forgo his film career (much to his agent's exasperation) and star in a local theater production of The Music Man back in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Problem is, he only realizes he can't really sing and can't really dance until he has already shmoozed his way into the lead role to the chagrin of some in the theater company. Meanwhile, his friend Ed Begley Jr. gets him involved in a potentially financially ruinous solar energy scam, and another friend Illeana Douglas begins dating Moby who, as Jeff discovers, has some peculiar fetishes. One of those rewarding discoveries that reaffirms why I keep giving little unknown films a chance.
A very funny, Christopher Guest-style mockumentary - plus I'm very Pittsburgh, so any recognition is always great!
