    Film favola, pieno di proponimenti, denunce, buoni propositi e finale di redenzione, libertà e sogno americano, sempre lui da tutte le parti.
    La trama è suadente, seppure forse irreale, a meno che non si pensi che l'uomo non è mai stato sulla luna, la recitazione è quasi un ammiccamento continuo allo spettatore, come se fosse lo spettatore del Truman Show, e il tutto, piuttosto caricato, forse in modo maldestro, assume le valenze di una qualsiasi isola dei famosi o fattoria dei vip.
    Troppo ispirati sia Carrey che Harris, eccessivamente compenetrati nelle rispettive parti di babbeo di laboratorio e scienziato pazzo saggio guru messia.
    Il film, in un primo tempo diverte, poi lascia spazio a dubbi e riflessioni e infine delude.
    Credo che il limite sia proprio nella recitazione, perché il meccanismo della storia è davvero affascinante e le inquadrature degli spettatori del Truman Show sono quasi didascaliche circa riflessioni antropologiche.
    Insomma: un'oretta e mezza di svago e poi un buongiorno, buonasera e buonanotte a tutta lo compagnia.
