Movie Reviews

Brutally funny
OmegaWolf747 | MI, United States | 10/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"MJ Clayton is an arrogant art critic that the art community loathes. He writes mean-spirited reviews even though he himself has never painted a picture. When he goes to the breathtaking historical island of Mackinac for a vacation, he drunkenly accepts a challenge from an artist he had recently dissed, to enter a painting of his own in an art contest. When he discovers he can't paint at all, he must come up with a plan quickly to save face. What will MJ Clayton do?!!!

How can I not love a film where the main character announces that he could paint a better picture than most artists by clenching a paint brush between his gluteal cheeks? Bronson Pinchot is dry humored and witty in this film and makes the character enough of a jerk at the start of the movie that you just want to strangle him. That is the essence of character acting!"
A subtle comedy...

"which I enjoyed very much. The story centers on M.J. Clayton (Bronson Pinchot), an arrogant art critic known for his mean-spirited reviews. Convinced that any idiot can create art, M.J. enters into an ill-conceived bar bet with an artist whose work he has trashed. He must create a piece of art worthy of the local juried art show. What follows is a series of dishonesties which ultimately lead to M.J.'s redemption. This is not a comedy that will have you rolling on the floor, but there are a number of really funny moments, and Pinchot's portrayal of the pompous M.J. (there are moments when you just want to slap him) gradually discovering that he's really not such a bad fellow is worth the price of admission."
