Storyline

Jeff Goldblum put his Hollywood actor life on hold to star alongside his new girlfriend in a Pittsburgh regional theater production of The Music Man. Co-directors Bradley and LaBrache tread a surprisingly elegant line between genuine documentary and outright self-parody improv in this deliciously deadpan comedy Written by Anonymous

Lighthearted and fun, in the end.
27 April 2008 | by ElswetSee all my reviews

Filmed in the style of Christopher Guest...kinda...this is a mock documentary (known as a "mocumentary" or "mockumentary") wherein Jeff Goldblum puts his film career (and his manager) on hold for a few months so that he can star in a live stage performance in Pittsburgh, his home town. Added into the mix are his "girlfriend," who needs a green card and thinks Jeff's presence on stage with her will guarantee her for the job and therein guarantee her green card, and Ed Begley, Jr. who seems to need small (but regular) pletoratic doses of anti-psychotics.

It is not funny, but it is witty, and actually pretends to attempt to document an actual event, at least insofar as Jeff Goldblum DID do a live stage play in Pittsburgh with the girl mentioned, and Pittsburgh IS his home town. It is not genius on film, but it does entertain and amuse. Not bad for what it is, but like Goldblum, it is an acquired taste.

It rates a 6.6/10 from...
