Altman and his writer, former Chicago Sun-Times reporter Barbara Shulgasser, should have gone further and been meaner; too many of his jokes are generic slapstick, instead of being aimed squarely at industry's targets.

Despite some delicious moments, this sluggish, overlong, halfhearted satire feels like a movie that wanted to go somewhere but never got there.

I got the feeling that Altman didn't really have any idea what he wanted to say with this film (which he later conceded in a TV interview).

Ready to Wear is to filmmaking what paper dresses were to fashion -- thin, trendy, and disposable.

Though it credits Mr. Altman and Barbara Shulgasser as writers, this film seems practically scriptless, to the point where much of it plays like a first rehearsal.
