When it's trying to be a more conventional comedy, it's mostly pretty bad.
A charming and funny look at the independent filmmaking business and the thin line between a masterpiece and a $9 nap.
Good but not great.
While [Stiller] and everyone else look like they're having a great time working on a shoestring, their movie too often retells the same joke.
A mockumentary that is as endearing as it is silly.
Garofalo, wary but indulgent as the director's estranged daughter, has great comic rapport with Stiller.
Stiller should get an Oscar for his performance as Fineman and that's no joke. This is a role of a lifetime and Stiller relishes the opportunity.
Really, truly, one of the funniest movies of the last decade.
has enough raw talent to elevate it above the usual mockufare
Now this is what I'm talking about right here. We need more films like THIS!
A lot of fun, thanks in no small part to the wonderfully over the top performance of Jerry Stiller
Hollywood loves to satirize itself, wanting to reassure us it doesn't take itself too seriously. The Independent is worlds away from The Player (1992), but it's still one joke hammered over and over, hitting more often than missing.
I think that Jerry Stiller has one of the best comedic performances ever here.
It's just plain stupid in every sense of the word, but Stiller is hilarious and the film exceeds any expectations. The scene where the reporter is interviewing Stiller and asking him about his career is one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen.
Comedy with Jerry Stiller as a B-movie director known for his "interesting" films. When he decides he wants to make a new film about a serial killer's life he finds he's skint, so,along with the help of his daughter and long suffering assistant, he tries to get people's interest back into his work by trying to get a company to screen his films at a film festival. Obviously, this proves difficult due to a cult-ish, and limited audience.I have to admit, until i spotted this in a budget store the other day,i'd never heard of The Independent,but i was just about pleasantly suprised as this has some funny moments,the cast is good and its a pretty good story to. Not brilliant but pretty cool.
