Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Full of improvised laughs!

Improvisation terrifies me, I was never good at it when I took it as a freshmen in Drama I! That leads me to have a great deal of respect for Mr. Guest, who roughly outlines his actor's character's conversations then lets them have the reigns! It gives the movie an incredibly free spirit! The standouts here include Eugene Levy (as always) as Morley, a slick-talking agent and Catherine O'Hara's excellent turn as an Oscar hungry veteran actress who gets caught up in her movie's buzz. It could've been funnier given the premise, but taking into account it was all made up on the spot, "FYC" is a film you should consider!
