Despite having some hilarious moments especially from Macy and Baldwin, the entire movie feels disconnected and confused. There are scenes that simply do not work and characters that make no sense. Overall, decent but disappointing.
I still can't get over how disappointing I thought this was...just because I like David Mamet and almost all of the cast. Frankly, the relationship that brewed between Hoffman and Pidgeon's character was awkward and juuust a little too cutesy for my liking. Started out strong and funny but once I saw where the plot lines were heading everything got super predictable and super boring.

Hilarious and original. Some moments don't appeal to me, but those that do make the film worth watching. I can't imagine what making a film is really like but this certainly helped paint an interesting if not humorous picture.
Great cast, great script, great directing. 4 stars easily.
