    " No no no!!!!! "

    " I'm being nice with the two stars. Highly overrated. Couldn't care less about any of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Goodman | 9/12/2013

    " A modern look at what the true world of the movie industry in Hollywood: the cruel side of business and sacrifice. Love and emotional plays make the ending of the play an unexpected twist in the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shella | 7/2/2013

    " I found the characters difficult to get attached to, there was nothing there to make you reach for sympathy. I think I was missing something as I did not get the humor in this book. I am going to see the play soon and I hope that I will appreciate that better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 4/23/2013

    " Mamet's ongoing campaign to replace language with lingo proceeds apace. "

    " Movie-making with Mamet...Ah! The smell of it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 2/15/2012

    " I don't think Mamet considers women to be real people. In Mamet world, the guys lead fascinating expletive-filled lives that aren't much fun. The excitement of a Mamet production comes from the speed of delivery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 9/24/2011

    " Three and half stars, really. Mamet's quick dialogue might be misconstrued as scattered or unorganized, but it mirrors the fast paced lifestyle of those working in showbiz in Hollywood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allyson Capetta | 9/1/2011

    " Yikes. I played Karen in a college production, and was by far some of the most difficult actin I've done....probably because Mamet seemed to have no purpose for this character expect to throw the male characters into conflict. Very one-dimensional with her and stereotypical plot line. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Asa Merritt | 7/15/2011

    " Unbelievable pace. Reads like a thriller. Except it's also literature. "

    " There is no net. "

    " I like the realism in Mamet's dialogue. It's very fast paced and the interruptions are so true to the way people talk in real life. Aside from that, I'm not a fan of this play. "
