Los Angeles Times
A giddy comic fantasy, full of romance, chicanery and beguiling, sophisticated players.
75
One of the season's most watchable treats.
70
Jaglom's quickest and funniest picture in years and the most accessible.
63
Boston Globe
Many of the story lines offer only superficial insight into the characters; Silver's rich but unhappy mogul has been done far too many times.

Philadelphia Inquirer
It isn't a good movie, but it is diverting, a showcase for Anouk Aimee, Greta Scacchi and Ron Silver, and a peephole on behind-the-scenes moves.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Festival in Cannes is definitely Jaglomesque, but can't get that tricky balance right -- the result is a picture as charmingly insubstantial as the world it invokes.

ReelViews
In crafting an insider's perspective, Jaglom has done an effective job. It's too bad that nearly everything else fails.
50
With its brisk pace, breezy dialogue and gently jaundiced view of the rites of filmmaking, this is one of Jaglom's most accessible and genuinely enjoyable films.
40
L.A. Weekly
This isn't a terrible film by any means, but it's also far from being a realized work. Jaglom has said that he “writes” his films in the editing room, but for Festival in Cannes he must have been using a crayon.
30
Remains little more than a briefly fascinating curiosity, a travelogue for those of us who can't actually attend.
