All Critics (43) | Top Critics (14)

  • Their [Toback and Baldwin] film about the idea of the film is entertaining and diverting, even if there is also something slightly melancholy about this artificial pursuit of a cinematic phantasm.

  • Nice try, guys, but no deal.

  • Jolly good fun, even if it doesn't exactly manage to fulfil its wonky remit.

  • Baldwin and Toback make a snappy comic duo, and half of their talks with a line-up of luminaries focus on the art of filmmaking rather than the business.

  • A fun, larky travel essay and commentary on the film biz, an exquisite wallow in the most rarefied sort of first-world problems.

  • Ironically, the failure of the financing mission gives [it] a sharper edge. But in the end, that edge will probably be of more interest to Baldwin, Toback and the film biz than to a civilian, who mostly wants to know why she can't find a decent rom-com.
