December 21, 2001
... it feels padded and stretched beyond its limits.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 23, 2001
Never quite pins down what fame is supposed to mean.
January 28, 2015
Neither as outright funny nor as resonant as it seems to want to be.
October 5, 2001
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.
September 20, 2001
smugly self-congratulatory... shooting fish in a barrel
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 5, 2001
...in what seems to be a curse suffered by most mockumentaries, none of it is particularly memorable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

As amusing and sharply performed as it is, Lisa Picard quickly grows thin and dull.
October 18, 2001
Likable but not exceptional.
December 14, 2001
The film is a lot like its heroine: cocksure and half-cocked all at once.
December 16, 2006
| Original Score: 2/5
September 13, 2001
Feels like what it is: an improvised comedy bit that two friends came up with.
August 21, 2001
Comes down to two sorely limited and rapidly tiresome characters.
August 22, 2001
A piffle, but a cute one.
August 23, 2001
Mostly harmless and slightly silly.
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.

August 31, 2001
Lisa Picard Is Famous is to film what Off Off Broadway is to theater.
September 14, 2001
An empty-headed mockumentary about celebrity that makes you appreciate all the more the talents of Christopher Guest.
October 20, 2001
A marshmallow-soft satire that eventually peters out into sticky near-melodrama.

An intermittently engaging but inescapably overextended mockumentary.
