It's everywhere! The first five minutes contain real barf material. It is an insane Roman Circus illustrating a young Hollywood as we would like to think it.
Robbie was doing her shtick: dumb, wild blonde with no limits on behavior. Pitt was the handsome silent screen heartthrob who had a new fiance every third scene. The supporting cast was good because this film was primarily a dramedy or comedrama so serious acting was not required. The only too-far performance was Toby Maquire.
Just a little too long. Take a hanky.
A film about Hollywood released just in time for consideration means the studio expects an Oscar party of major proportion. We'll see.
All those celebrities need some patting on the back from each other, and some pointless awards show.
Commercials don't look very promising.
Based on what I saw, I'd guess it gets very little in the way of awards. Some reviewers have described it as a poison pen letter to Hollywood. I generally agree. Great production values and an interesting mostly modern jazz influenced soundtrack and maybe even a somewhat accurate portrayal of Hollywood of the era . . . but very unflattering. If I was an academy member, I'd vote for anything but.
Honestly, very unlikely I will. If it comes on TV sometime in the future I might... but probably not. Not my type of movie at all.
