Economical, slick, entertaining, and only 5 people in my audience? Inexcusable. Go see it.

'New Suit's' satire works well; its characters are engaging, and the film comes across as sweetly amusing.
November 7, 2003
An acidic satire that transcends its one-joke premise to skewer, with a fair amount of accuracy and great, biting humor, the emptiness of so much contemporary moviemaking.
October 3, 2003
An enjoyable film that's nonetheless flawed.

Velle takes a high-concept script from Craig Sherman and makes an enjoyable -- if disappointingly shallow -- coming- of-age story set in Tinseltown.

An old story, The Emperor's New Clothes turned inside out, but screenwriter Craig Sherman and director Francois Velle have such fun with the material that it's completely contagious.

It's strangely unsatisfying, a Hollywood tattletale best suited as a subplot to some yet-to-be-made Woody Allen film.

Instead of the bitter satire that could have been made from the exact same script, they have chosen to make a bright, airy comedy.

More chastising swipe than vicious satire, the nicely cast, well executed New Suit achieves success through modesty of scale.
