It's about an indie movie called "Home for Purim," a somewhat inane drama about a dysfunctional Jewish family living in the South during World War II. But while the film is still in production, a reporter for an online entertainment site drops the word -- based on a brief visit to the set -- that one of the ensemble cast performers may be an Oscar contender. It goes on to chronicle how the Oscar buzz affects the director, additional cast members, writers, an agent, a publicist, and the hosts from an Hollywood entertainment-type television program.

The worst of Christopher Guest's films, so so. Great cast but not so great script, etc.

Watchable (Fair) - If you're looking for a heavy plot in a movie, this is not for you. It's a satirical look at the the behind the scenes of a film being produced and the actor's aspiration for Oscar recognition. The film flows well but it's not a laugh out loud comedy. It's more of an interesting piece where you're almost stuck waiting to see how all the storylines get resolved. Some will like this film, others will give up before it really gets going. I almost gave up but I kept watching and was mildly amused by film's end.
