If only for the comedy glory of Sigourney Weaver as a TV network president who confuses acid reflux with gut instinct, this very smart, very funny movie about the making of a network sitcom (written and directed by bona fide insider Jake Kasdan) is a cut-glass gem of a showbiz conceit. But that’s not all: You also get a crackerjack cast of in-on-the-jokesters, including David Duchovny as a comedy writer making commercial use of his brother’s suicide, and Amazing Grace’s Ioan Gruffudd as the BBC expat brought in to class up the joint.
Genre: Comedy; Starring: David Duchovny, Judy Greer, Sigourney Weaver, Justine Bateman, Ioan Gruffudd, Lindsay Sloane; Director: Jake Kasdan; Author: Jake Kasdan; Release Date Limited: 04/06/2007; Runtime (in minutes): 89; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: THINKFilm
