"Dealin' With Idiots," a sort of "Waiting for Guffman" for Little League, isn't a great movie, but it's a heck of a lot better than its title.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
[A] flat, aimless comedy skewering the parents of junior baseball players.
The movie was largely improvised, which lends itself more to scenes than a feature-length film.
| Original Score: 2/4
There are a few inspired moments, but Garlin goes for easy laughs, and the actors' broad improvisations often fall flat.
| Original Score: 2/5
This isn't actually a movie about kiddie sports - it's a movie about Garlin interviewing the other parents and players to see if there's an interesting movie to be made at all. Answer: There isn't.
| Original Score: 1/5
The results are amusing if predictably mild.
| Original Score: 3/5
The whole project is mean-hearted and lazy, and it dawdles in repetition and dead air as if it's got a 14-show TV season to spin out.
Essentially an overlong, off-brand episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm ...
A largely improvised ensemble piece about a comedian who decides that his son's Little League team would make an interesting subject for a movie. It doesn't.
| Original Score: D-
Surprise is the spark of laughter, which may explain why this seldom generates any.
