A guy looking for a break in the movie biz discovers the power of word of mouth in this satirical comedy. Kevin Taylor (Jordan Bridges) is an aspiring screenwriter who has pulled up stakes and moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An acidic satire that transcends its one-joke premise to skewer, with a fair amount of accuracy and great, biting humor, the emptiness of so much contemporary moviemaking."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"It's funny and has an interesting edge of bitterness to it."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"a decent film, just one that's hard to take seriously"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Velle ... brings a perceptive outsider's view to the world of contemporary Hollywood that catches all the nuances of hypocrisy."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A good-spirited comedy that's a real charmer."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"An enjoyable film that's nonetheless flawed."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Velle takes a high-concept script from Craig Sherman and makes an enjoyable -- if disappointingly shallow -- coming- of-age story set in Tinseltown."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"Economical, slick, entertaining, and only 5 people in my audience? Inexcusable. Go see it."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"This sort of thing has been done better ... but it's still pretty entertaining."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"(Craig) Sherman solidly sets a counterpoint to the comedy, by creating a palpable whiff of desperation emanating from everyone concerned"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"Doesn't have much new to say about Hollywood."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"An old story, The Emperor's New Clothes turned inside out, but screenwriter Craig Sherman and director Francois Velle have such fun with the material that it's completely contagious."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"'New Suit's' satire works well; its characters are engaging, and the film comes across as sweetly amusing."
‑ Diana Saenger, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"There have been plenty of sendups and self-satires about the insanity inside the Hollywood machine, and this one doesn't add enough new curves."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"An oddly sweet and effective satire."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
