Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
A madcap gem.

L.A. Weekly - F. X. Feeney
Yet Waiting for Guffman is never mean-spirited. Its weird warmth is perfectly embodied by Guest himself, whose flamboyant, stagestruck choreographer, Corky St. Clair, could have (in less ingenious hands) been a cruel, gay-bashing caricature, but instead becomes a hallucinatory Everyman.

Newsweek - David Ansen
The movie is, from start to finish, a hoot... Both a savvy satire of smalltown boosterism and an affectionate salute to the performing spirit. [10 Feb 1987, p.66]

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Thirty minutes into Waiting for Guffman, my stomach hurt from laughing.

The New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
The don't quite do for "Oklahoma!" what they did for heavy metal, but they come close. [31 Jan 1997, p.C6]
