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

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.

... it feels padded and stretched beyond its limits.

The film is a lot like its heroine: cocksure and half-cocked all at once.

A solid mockumentary of both comedy and compassion.

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.

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.

smugly self-congratulatory... shooting fish in a barrel

It's not every comedy that can make you laugh with ridicule and cringe in empathetic horror at the same time.

An empty-headed mockumentary about celebrity that makes you appreciate all the more the talents of Christopher Guest.
