Teddy Bears' Picnic Reviews

Scott Foundas

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Pic lacks the development needed for a full-length feature and, following a hilarious opening sequence, it becomes tiresomely one-note.

Most of the film feels conceived and shot on the fly -- like between lunch breaks for Shearer's radio show and his Simpson voice-overs.

The satire is unfocused, while the story goes nowhere.

It is supremely unfunny and unentertaining to watch middle-age and older men drink to excess, piss on trees, b.s. one another and put on a show in drag.

A beyond-lame satire, Teddy Bears' Picnic ranks among the most pitiful directing debuts by an esteemed writer-actor.

Too much of it feels unfocused and underdeveloped.
