This brilliant satire, styled as a murder mystery, is the best insider's view of Hollywood since Sunset Boulevard. [15 Dec 1992, p.A16(E)]
What M.A.S.H. did to service comedies, what McCabe and Mrs. Miller did to westerns, what The Long Goodbye did to detective pictures, The Player does the to Hollywood success story. [24 April 1992]
