The Big Picture aims at targets that might not be familiar to viewers who aren't well-versed in movie-biz chicanery, but hits most of them so solidly that laughter is the only option.

[A] hilariously canny 1989 satire about contemporary filmmaking in Hollywood.
Befitting two of the co-authors of This is Spinal Tap, Guest and Michael McKean, The Big Picture displays a keen eye for the silliness of film biz customs, lingo and attitudes.
The movie references may strike some as in-jokey, but Guest's likeable film has enough jaundiced sideswipes and lighter chuckles to see it through its slacker spells.
A consistently genial, intermittently funny send-up of the current Hollywood scene as demonstrated by the rise and fall of an award-winning film student.
You keep rooting for this Hollywood sendup to make it, even as the bad ideas start gaining on the good.
A genial and funny satire/comedy about an up-and-coming student filmmaker.
Partly romance, partly fantasy, partly satire on what passes for life in Hollywood -- and all charm -- this movie even has a perfect title.
A failed attempt to spoof the wheelers and dealers behind the scenes in Hollywood.
Sometimes hilarious, sometimes chilling anti-Hollywood comedy.
Very slight, but it hits most of its Hollywood targets with a certain degree of savvy.
The Movie Machine is skewered and lampooned with an impressive accuracy, but it never crosses the line into becoming an outright bash.
If only it was as clever as it believes itself to be.
Kind of like the Player and The Scret Life of Walter Mitty, but not nearly as good as either.
This was a good flick but there were elements introduced in the beginning of the movie that fell away.
All of the actors did fine jobs but the movie was a little predictable. It was fun for the person who is familiar with how Hollywood works.
One funny thing... it seemed that every character in the movie who smoke was played by someone who obviously didn't.
