Movie thoughts: For Your Consideration

Just finished watching this, and I have to say I was dissappointed.  I really enjoyed ‘Best in Show’, ‘A Mighty Wind’ and pretty much all of Guest & Co’s other works.  But this movie only had a few giggles.

I think the problem was too much script.  Instead of letting his team of improvisers go crazy with the subject, this movie seemed to have so much going on that they never got their moments.  The best parts were with the spoofs of the entertainment talk shows. 

I’ll admit, I did jump up during John Krasinksi’s cameo because I didn’t know he was in it.  And Ricky Gervais also carried his scenes very well.  But a lot of this was just painful to watch. 

I wanted to laugh, I really did.  But this one just didn’t do anything for me.
