  • Hits: a frequently funny but easy-prey satire about America's obsession with fame, displaying a small-screen sensibility that extends from its joke setups to its boxy visuals.

  • Plagued with uneven pacing and tone, "Hits" feels more like a rant.

  • Unfortunately, by the end, thanks to a misguided use of a few offensive slurs against gays and African Americans, the whole thing turns needlessly ugly, undermining the goodwill Cross had mustered.

  • David Cross, who also wrote the script, is content to come across like a grumpy old man. His comedy is one-note, furious, and fun-enough

  • [A] modest, focused directorial debut ...

    Interesting, but in the end, not substantial enough to hold interest. Too many characters, and too many really good actors under used in tiny bit parts (Julia Stiles, for example). Follows the lives of various people, probably could have focused on just one or two and dropped the rest (baby lady would have been a good one to lose).
