  • Overview
  • Details
A director (Christopher Guest) who's never had a hit film pins his hopes on the independent drama Home for Purim, a movie about a Jewish family living in the 1940s South that's earning buzz for its standout performances. Guest's reliable troupe of improvers -- including Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Eugene Levy -- are even funnier with the addition of Ricky Gervais, who plays a Hollywood "suit."

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this "mockumentary" is aimed more at adults than kids, but teens who've enjoyed director Christopher Guest's earlier films (including Best in Show) may very well want to see it. It's satirical treatment contains references to same-sex relationships, prostitutes, ethnic jokes, and superficial people who are only thinking of themselves -- but make it seem like they're thinking of everyone else. It's all about the superficial world of Hollywood, where the bottom line is more important than people. The movie's goal is to satirize that world, but some kids may miss the subtler digs and spoofs.
