It'll probably be pretty popular on video, especially with anyone who's ever had the acting bug.

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.

Lisa Picard, while neither as smugly smirky as Guffman nor as over-the-top hilarious as Tap, has its own small charms.

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

Dave White

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

Deserves a place beside the comedies of Christopher Guest in the hall of fame of semi-deadpan spoofs.

Film Journal International

Proves yet again, to believers in documentrary grit and spontaneity, that nothing improves realism like elegance.
Lael Loewenstein
Boxoffice Magazine

Boasts an appealing, off-beat flavor.
