For Your Consideration

Guest Author - Caitlin D Neely

Two veteran yet obscure actors, Marilyn Hack and Victor Allan Miller, (Catherine O’Hara and Harry Shearer) are cast as the patriarch and matriarch of a 1940s Southern Jewish family in a movie entitled Home For Purim. Even though the film seems like it will be a flop, Oscar buzz begins to generate around Hack, Miller and Callie Webb (Parker Posey), the woman who plays their lesbian daughter. The actors slowly begin to change as a result of the Oscar rumor.

Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy once again make a hilarious movie. It’s no wonder, though, considering the movie’s they’ve made in the past. They also appear in the movie and don’t disappoint in that role either.

This movie is packed with funny actors. Jane Lynch is great in her supporting role as one of the hosts of an entertainment television show. Jennifer Coolidge is hilarious as always as the dumb producer and I also enjoyed Ed Begley Jr. He has a somewhat stereotypical role that he manages to make unique. There’s always a smile on my face when he’s on screen.

The lead actors are fantastic to. I love O’Hara in every film I’ve seen her in and this is no different. She has a great transition from an actress who is washed up to one who starts acting completely outrageous after the Oscar buzz boosts her ego. She is by far the funniest in the movie. Eugene Levy also has tons of hilarious one liners as Miller’s distracted and uncaring agent.

This is a great satire on acting and the acting methods that go along with it. Especially the last scene with Catherine O’Hara (that also features a former SNL cast member some might recognize) but I won’t ruin it.

While not as funny as Guest’s other movies, For Your Consideration holds it’s own. All of the actors give great performances and bring something unique to the film.

For Your Consideration (directed by Christopher Guest) was co-written by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy. Christopher Guest has also directed Waiting for Guffman, Best In Show and A Mighty Wind.
