Actor-turned-filmmaker Griffin Dunne directs this mockumentary about the lives of struggling thespians. The film focuses on Lisa Picard (Laura Kirk), a fledgling actress about to burst on the scene thanks to a bit part in a made-for-TV movie. She is followed around by Dunne as she makes her publicity rounds with her friend Tate Kelley (Nat DeWolf), a writer/actor/militant gay activist. Famous is populated with several direct-to-camera interviews featuring the likes of Penelope Ann Miller,

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.
An intermittently engaging but inescapably overextended mockumentary.
Likable but not exceptional.
It's not every comedy that can make you laugh with ridicule and cringe in empathetic horror at the same time.
Funny and pathetically accurate portrait of an obsessed wanna-be
It'll probably be pretty popular on video, especially with anyone who's ever had the acting bug.
The film is a lot like its heroine: cocksure and half-cocked all at once.
While the script makes many astute observations and the performers are game, "Lisa Picard Is Famous" comes across as slight as the marginal characters it portrays.
A marshmallow-soft satire that eventually peters out into sticky near-melodrama.
It might not be all new material and the characters do grow somewhat weary after a fast start but, all things considered, it was surprisingly a lot of fun.
Not once does she reveal anything personal to us. She soon becomes whiny, high-strung and pretentious. We begin to wish that we had some aspirin of our own.
...in what seems to be a curse suffered by most mockumentaries, none of it is particularly memorable.
Lisa Picard, while neither as smugly smirky as Guffman nor as over-the-top hilarious as Tap, has its own small charms.
An empty-headed mockumentary about celebrity that makes you appreciate all the more the talents of Christopher Guest.
