Although it scores some easy laughs, Guest’s latest is a disappointment – no advance on his last stab at Hollywood satire, 1989’s ‘The Big Picture’. Abandoning the mockumentary format and seemingly unsure what to put in its place, Guest allows his regular collaborators to indulge in broad caricatures which might have looked more at home in a sketch show. O’Hara has the best of it as Marilyn Hack, a veteran character actress who sees glory when an internet report incites Oscar hysteria on the set of ‘Home for Purim’ – one of those southern Jewish tearjerkers we see so many of these days.
