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.April 26, 2002 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for The Independent
Oct 30, 2011I think that Jerry Stiller has one of the best comedic performances ever here.
Aug 15, 2011It'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.
Jan 26, 2009Comedy 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.Adam M Super Reviewer
