Movie Info

Mockumentary about would-be New York actress Lisa Picard who hopes to get more than a fleeting taste of fame when a racy cereal commercial brings her unexpected national notoriety. Earnest documentarian Andrew, who senses this actress's dreams are about to be fully realized, tracks her every move, attempting to capture the essence of someone in the seconds preceding their 15 minutes of fame. How do they walk, dress and act? Complicating matters even further is the fact that our objective documentarian is not so secretly hoping that this documentary about fame will help propel him to fame as well.

Neither as outright funny nor as resonant as it seems to want to be.

A solid mockumentary of both comedy and compassion.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

While Lisa Picard may not have the freshest theme around, it is funny and well acted and very knowing about the ins and outs of show business.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

An intermittently engaging but inescapably overextended mockumentary.

Likable but not exceptional.
