By Owen Gleiberman
It's not every comedy that can make you laugh with ridicule and cringe in empathetic horror at the same time.

The New York Times

By Stephen Holden
This hilarious fake documentary -- deserves a place beside the comedies of Christopher Guest in the hall of fame of semi-deadpan spoofs.

New York Post

By Jonathan Foreman
It turns into something that is much smarter, and in a gentle, low-key way, tougher and funnier than you expect.

The cottage industry of the mockumentary has produced another pleasing trifle, the cute and smart Lisa Picard Is Famous.

Mr. Showbiz

By Michael Atkinson
As amusing and sharply performed as it is, Lisa Picard quickly grows thin and dull. Perhaps it would have been better as a real documentary, with Kirk and DeWolf simply playing their pathetic selves.

It's a nice little film, likable but not exceptional, and it will probably appeal most strongly to actors, would be-actors, wannabes and ex-actors.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
The result is often quite funny, without ever managing to say anything especially new or perceptive about fame and the culture of celebrity.
