I had been wanting to see this movie for a long time, and I finally got the chance when it came out on DVD recently here in Australia. I'm so glad I did this was one of the funniest films in recent memory, I thought William H. Macy stole the show as the fictional film's director. Phillip Seymour Hoffman was perfectly cast as usual and I thought his relationship with the Rebecca Pidgeon character had great chemistry. The rest of the cast were a delight as well. I thought in some parts it may have dragged a little but it definately wasn't enough to squabble about. I'm a fan of Mamet's other work and this is definately one of his best. I would give it a 3 1/2 out of 4, and I definately recommend it to people who have yet to see it. I watched this with my 2 flat-mates and they didn't know what I was laughing at. By the end one was asleep and the other went off to his room which was a bit disappointing. I felt they missed a gem of a movie. I'm just curious as to what others thought about this film?
