S.O.B. is a poison pen letter to the industry, a film of undisguised hatred. Edwards' sense of the funny has sunk to sour insults.

Blake Edwards' outrageous S.O.B. may never be held in the same regard as Sunset Boulevard or The Player, but as a searing satire about the underbelly of the Hollywood lifestyle, it still ranks as one of the best.

Blake Edwards cleans house

Black comedy is a tough commodity to sustain and, after a broad start, Edwards quickly finds a deft balance that paints a cockeyed, self-contained world that comfortably supports its exaggerated characters.

It seems more like an expectorant for Edwards' bile than an entertainment aimed at an audience.

Caustic, satirical, and one of Blake Edwards' best.

It's a nasty, biased, self-serving movie that also happens to be hilarious most of the time.

If only it were half as clever as it thinks it is.

What I regard as Edwards' crowning achievement. It is a wickedly funny, impeccably cast, ingeniously subversive satire of the Hollywood film industry.
