It took me a minute to figure out that they were not documenting but rather scripting the lives of Hacks. This means that the characters overact each of the various "hacky" comedic types. The thing that was missed here is that there are actual people out there who are this self absorbed and terrible at comedy. Jim Gaffigan was the only noteable celebrity to break out of this group of local comics. What this movie was essentially is the local comics of a certain city getting together to film a production. This results in half way decent writing and mostly bad acting. It was mildly entertaining but not the gem I was looking for. Next time someone should really follow around some hacks.
I'm giving this a high rating because the guy in there is acting exactly how I would act given the situation. Up until the point where he doesn't go and tell anyone about the near insurmountable evidence for paranormal activity he has. He could have his own special on the History channel with this type of A material. I also appreciate that this guy has a phat crib in San Diego, jealous. This movie just proves that the most potent fear generator is your own imagination. I appreciated being scared of bumps in the night verses a fear of not knowing what disgusting scene was going to be thrust into my face. This reminds me of the time I found my roommate butt naked and screaming in his room tripping his balls off. Which is like twice as scary as this ghost, cause I knew he was both real and really crazy. Sometimes normal activity is worse than Paranormal. I still don't believe in ghosts and you should be jealous because next week I'm due to have a personalized ghost hunt in the Baxter Avenue Morgue.
As obnoxious as the actor portraying Mozart is in this movie, the performance by his arch rival Antonio Salieri (played by F. Murray Abraham) exuded passion and emotion. It was a good perspective to have, showing outright the impact that Mozart had on the world and his own microcosm of Valencia. The costume design was incredibly elaborate and was well complimented by a rustic Italian backdrop. I dislike movies that choose English over the natural language of the focused subject. i still think it would have been a better portrayal of the characters if they spoke in Italian. Seriously though, how badass is Mozart. That dude should have been played by Brad Pitt, we should rewrite history and make him cool instead of a spoiled brat of a mad artist.
