Peter Bogdanovich's film is an okay comedy-drama about the early days of motion pictures.

As an homage to the start of the film industry, this extravaganza is quite a tribute, but as a motion picture it's sadly lacking.

Bogdanovich is trying to do an interesting and commendable thing in dramatizing aesthetic passion; his failure is as noble as it is conspicuous.

The direction is agonisingly pedantic for a comedy, and leaves O'Neal and Reynolds totally exposed, mugging away in charmless and clumsy fashion.

A clunker of a comedy from Bogdanovich that aims high and misses by a mile.

Peter Bogdanovich knows a great deal about movies, including how they are made. Perhaps he doesn't know why they are made. In any case, knowing how something is made isn't the same as making it.

We're reminded that Orson Welles described a movie studio as the biggest electric train a kid could ever get. Bogdanovich doesn't let us play with his train. Instead, he keeps us on the outside of a curiously flat movie.
