    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    This would-be satire earns an E for Effort for wanting to be to the advertising world what “Being There” was to television. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    While Greenwood and Posey turn on enough charm to make this a fairly painless experience, Zack Bernbaum’s And Now a Word From Our Sponsor is a mild, toothless satire — a “Being There’’ where there’s barely any there there. show more

    It's a testament to Bruce Greenwood's acting that Adan never becomes entirely as insufferable as the words that come out of his mouth. show more

    At least this tepid satire can coast on the charms of its cast. show more

    The project seems compromised by a meager budget and limited scale. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    With the nimble Greenwood and a kinder, gentler-than-usual Posey in charge, "And Now" proves a thoroughly engaging lark. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    To describe And Now a Word From Our Sponsor as a one-joke skit stretched well beyond the breaking point isn’t entirely fair, because when used ingeniously, which is very seldom, the joke lands. show more

    Plop plop. Fizz fizz. Oh, what a missed opportunity it is! In the well-cast but seldom funny satire And Now a Word From Our Sponsor. show more

    The dialogue is unspeakable, the scenes unplayable, the waste of talent unpardonable. show more

    Mike D'Angelo The A.V. Club

    Had this moronic part been given to almost anybody else — including folks as talented as, say, Robin Williams or Jim Carrey — the result would very likely have been an unmitigated disaster. Greenwood, however, commits to it wholeheartedly, much the way that Naomi Watts’ struggling actress character treated her hackneyed soap-opera dialogue in Mulholland Drive. show more
