Movie Info

After a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers with the motto "all for one" accept Hannah Rinaldi (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success -- but that's exactly what they get. While her career takes off, her eccentric and envious colleagues (Chris Klein, Teri Polo, Dylan Walsh, Dennis Farina and Jonathan Bennett) struggle to find their own paths to publishing fame and fortune. Tensions rise, rivalries form, and hearts are broken. Rejection turns to desperation. Good thing they're only armed with pens... (c) Screen Media

The only reason to watch this picture is for the novelty value of feeling bad for Chris Klein and/or Teri Polo. To each his own, but my recommendation is "pass."

"Authors Anonymous" proves too kindhearted to stick to its satirical guns; even the documentary conceit recedes when it becomes inconvenient.

"Authors Anonymous" makes the same mistake it chides its characters for: hero worship.

Pulling off a broad satire requires great finesse: If, as in the mockumentary "Authors Anonymous," all of the subjects are idiots, why should we care?

Not even this movie's foolish characters could fail to notice the irony: there isn't a single moment of creativity in their own story.

You get the sense that Kanner would benefit from attending a few workshops of her own.

Audience Reviews for Authors Anonymous


Interesting little satire. At first nearly switched it off, but glad I stuck with it. Biting look at a group of wannabe writers. Some of it works better than other bits, but once I got used to the style, I quite enjoyed it.

I sat through 40 minutes of this and saw nothing but a bunch of people sitting around and whining pretentiously at each other. I didn't have high expectations considering the cast, but I thought maybe I could at least sit through the whole thing. Just kidding. Don't waste your time.

Best way to describe this movie is useless. Only watched it to see Kaley Cuocco as soneone else other than Penny on Big Bang Theory
