Time Out says
The credible feel of this film-within-the-film remains an achievement; it’s neither mocking nor parodic and nearly always deadly serious. Directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe (who made ‘Lost in La Mancha’, the chronicle of Terry Gilliam’s sad fate at the hands of Don Quixote) offer reflected comment on the entertainment machine, then and now. There are hints of Andrew Loog Oldham, Malcolm Maclaren and other bygone puppeteers of rock – but the filmmakers’ thesis could equally be applied to Simon Fuller and Simon Cowell and their latter-day harnessing of wide-eyed young talent. It’s not all finger-pointing: the film questions the longevity of all creative partnerships, especially those born from without and whose longevity and success rides on each member’s willingness to continue. The Cheeky Girls were never conjoined – but their journey was no less freaky.
