The Next Big Thing is a 2001 romantic comedy film starring Marin Hinkle, Chris Eigeman, Jamie Harris, Connie Britton, and Janet Zarish. It was directed by P.J. Posner.
The film received mixed reviews, with Rotten Tomatoes reporting that 41 of critics gave it a positive review. Lawrence Van Gelder of The New York Times called it a deftly satisfying, comically coherent sendup of the world of art. In contrast, Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times thought it was a feeble and tedious satire, and Ed Park of The Village Voice said that Posners dishearteningly unsophisticated treatment itself rings false.
