Comedy that takes some liberties of Hollywood itself

As usual, ignore the critic reviews. The user reviews on imbd sum up the film well. The type of humor isn't for everyone, especially if they were expecting something from the original 80s film as this is a fiction of reality rather than pure fiction. The few shortcomings of the film have nothing to do with Paul. He did a great job, and the cameos were fun. Lifting the veil off hollywood is typically not received well when most people would rather prefer fantasy than reality. Seems many missed the message of the plot, which was that people make the extra effort for those they care about dearly (his granddaughter in the film) and their well being being brings you more fufillment than personal acheivements (trading his presence at his knighthood to be present at his granddaughter's play). A great film for light hearted comedy.
