Mockumentary about would-be New York actress Lisa Picard who hopes to get more than a fleeting taste of fame when a racy cereal commercial brings her unexpected national notoriety. Earnest documentarian Andrew, who senses this actress's dreams are about to be fully realized, tracks her every move, attempting to capture the essence of someone in the seconds preceding their 15 minutes of fame.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A solid mockumentary of both comedy and compassion."
‑ Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News
"Likable but not exceptional."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Funny and pathetically accurate portrait of an obsessed wanna-be"
‑ Audrey Rock-Richardson, Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)
"The film is a lot like its heroine: cocksure and half-cocked all at once."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
"... a little charmer."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"While Lisa Picard may not have the freshest theme around, it is funny and well acted and very knowing about the ins and outs of show business."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Often hilarious mockumentary."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"It'll probably be pretty popular on video, especially with anyone who's ever had the acting bug."
‑ John Venable,
"While the script makes many astute observations and the performers are game, "Lisa Picard Is Famous" comes across as slight as the marginal characters it portrays."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"It might not be all new material and the characters do grow somewhat weary after a fast start but, all things considered, it was surprisingly a lot of fun."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An intermittently engaging but inescapably overextended mockumentary."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"It's not every comedy that can make you laugh with ridicule and cringe in empathetic horror at the same time."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"... it feels padded and stretched beyond its limits."
‑ Ted Murphy,
"A marshmallow-soft satire that eventually peters out into sticky near-melodrama."
‑ Pam Grady,
"Not once does she reveal anything personal to us. She soon becomes whiny, high-strung and pretentious. We begin to wish that we had some aspirin of our own."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
