    Making a film is kind of a nightmare, but a riveting one. And Project Greenlight is in itself a riveting documentary. It's got a hero, it's got stars, it's got drama. In 12 parts, we'll find out if there's a happy ending.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • David Bianculli

    Miramax will release the winner's movie next year. Its value, at this moment, is a question mark, but Project Greenlight is an impressive exclamation mark. [28 Nov 2001, p.101]

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Phil Rosenthal

    It's hard to say from the series whether "Stolen Summer" will succeed as a movie, but it's abundantly clear that Project Greenlight works as television. [30 Nov 2001, p.59]

  • Mike McDaniel

    Folks, it's often not a pretty sight. But as with a jackknifed 18-wheeler, we can't keep our eyes off of it. [1 Dec 2001, p.10]

    It's fly-on-the-wall moviemaking, a must-see for anyone hoping to break into the creative side of the film business. [30 Nov 2001, p.14]

    Variety Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Project Greenlight distinguishes itself with its surprisingly warts-and-all approach. As it progresses, we get to see the sort of naked-ego shots and bottom-line talk you'd expect Miramax and its mob to have kept under wraps. [30 Nov 2001, p.D1]

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Much is written today about the products that come out of Hollywood, but rarely do we glimpse the drudgery that's involved in bringing movies to life. Project Greenlight offers a rare and unvarnished glimpse at the friction-filled cogs and gears that drive the Hollywood machine. [2 Dec 2001, p.TV-5]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review

    The early episodes of Project Greenlight do a great job of demonstrating just how important access is in Hollywood. [2 Dec 2001, p.C04]

    An attempt as fascinating as it is frustrating. But fun to watch all the same. [30 Nov 2001, p.1E]

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    The second hour gets into the wrangling with studio bosses, casting decisions and constraints to come. The minutia of line producing may be fascinating in theory, but watching hour after hour is a dreary prospect. [2 Dec 2001, p.F-01]

    Project Greenlight is a dream come true for a guy named Jones, but it looks like less of a thrill for the average viewer.
