I think I enjoyed this film more for the cast than anything else. It's not terribly successful as a satirical commentary, but entertaining enough. High stakes for the dumbest possible reason, but at least it's appropriately character motivated.
The only times I believe the characters and feel connected with them is when they are on a film set. That seems to have been intentional and part of the theme of the film, but it's a lot to ask the audience to engage with the characters for the majority of the film.
