For Your Consideration | 2006 | PG-13 | - 3.1.5
In this Hollywood parody, a group of has-been actors shoots an independent movie that begins to acquire Oscar nomination buzz, which fills them with hope. However, as celebrity shows start covering the production and award fever infects the filmmakers, the screenwriters become terrified that the film story is being changed to accommodate Hollywood standards. With Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Harry Shearer, Christopher Guest and John Michael Higgins. Directed by Christopher Guest. [1:26]

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
