The farce is so light on its feet that it's buoyant.

This frenetic movie has moments of wit, and Ms. Feiffer, a seasoned screen and Broadway performer, has range, stamina and charisma.

While on some level, He's Way More Famous Than You successfully skewers the cult of celebrity and the entertainment business, it ultimately marginalizes itself from the audience because of the un-likability of the leading character.

Self-pity, self-parody and self-destruction are blurred to cringe-inducing effect in He's Way More Famous Than You.

New York Daily News

Feiffer sometimes gets snagged on the look-at-me nature of her meta-performance, veering from pathological to pathetic, and not always in the best way.

Anything-goes, loopily autobiographical romp about the travails of a desperate actress it would be a nightmare to encounter in real life. But haven't we all, on some level?

The screenplay never meshes its ideas into one satirical story or even a series of sketches with individually coherent points. A little meta goes a long, long way.

Village Voice

A self-referential, insider farce about the hunger for Hollywood stardom, He's Way More Famous Than You is-like its leading lady-as unhinged as it is hilarious.

It would have been nice if the film had surrendered to its lunacy more blatantly, more carelessly.
