Critic Reviews of "Hollywood Shuffle"VarietyMarch 18, 2008
Brimming with imagination and energy, Hollywood Shuffle is the kind of shoestring effort more appealing in theory than execution.Chicago ReaderMarch 18, 2008
Improv talent Robert Townsend is pretty much the whole show.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Despite the film's conspicuously minuscule budget and shaky narrative structure, it is funny. If you value enthusiasm and imagination more than glossy sophistication, you'll laugh.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Townsend has taken aim at the industry's funny bone and struck a solid blow.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Under the circumstances, Hollywood Shuffle is an artistic compromise but a logistical triumph, announcing the arrival of a new talent whose next movie should really be something.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
For a mere $100,000, Townsend and company have made a funny, poignant and technically proficient film -- one that should thoroughly embarrass those studios that routinely offer up badly made, multimillion-dollar disasters.LarsenOnFilmMay 15, 2016
...presaged a revolution that never came.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 22, 2011
Townsend's low-budget indie is quite a poignant satire of the Hollywood industry and black stereotypingEmpire MagazineMarch 18, 2008
Always enjoyable and Townsend is great.TV GuideMarch 18, 2008
Although haphazardly paced and scattershot in approach, when it works, this satire on Hollywood's attitudes toward African-Americans is downright hilarious.DVDJournal.comApril 06, 2006
Instead of bile it has humor, which is the more reliable means of conveying a message.Goatdog's MoviesMay 04, 2004
The movie isn't perfect, but it provides some genuine laughs and some real food for thought.
