It was okay, but nowhere near as good as A Mighty Wind or Best in Show. Definitely my least favorite Christopher Guest movie.

"One of Christopher Guest's weaker films but it is still filled with clever moments and a nice smack to the face of award-chasers and film industry. It's easy to do, but doesn't get done enough."
