Has enough funny moments going on to make you not hate it for stating the obvious and ripping off Christopher Guest.

As amusing and sharply performed as it is, Lisa Picard quickly grows thin and dull.
Luke Y. Thompson
New Times
September 13, 2001
Feels like what it is: an improvised comedy bit that two friends came up with.
Top Critic
Peter Travers
Rolling Stone
August 31, 2001
A satire that succeeds by being as heartfelt as it is hilarious.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

Lisa Picard Is Famous is to film what Off Off Broadway is to theater.
August 29, 2001
The result is often quite funny, without ever managing to say anything especially new or perceptive about fame and the culture of celebrity.

Spirituality and Practice
August 23, 2001
Hits the bull's eye with its portrait of the ludicrous lengths actors and actresses in New York City will go to achieve celebrity status.

Greenwich Village Gazette

Mostly harmless and slightly silly.
Top Critic

New York Times
August 22, 2001
Deserves a place beside the comedies of Christopher Guest in the hall of fame of semi-deadpan spoofs.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

New York Post
August 22, 2001

A piffle, but a cute one.

Village Voice
August 21, 2001
Comes down to two sorely limited and rapidly tiresome characters.
Peter Henne
Film Journal International
August 20, 2001
Proves yet again, to believers in documentrary grit and spontaneity, that nothing improves realism like elegance.
Lael Loewenstein
Boxoffice Magazine
August 3, 2001
Boasts an appealing, off-beat flavor.
