This is a slight and unessential picture, but its quirky, compassionate tone seems destined to attract a cult following, and members of high-school drama clubs everywhere will be riveted.

The Marc Pease Experience is likable enough; it's just no Rushmore.

No character is worth caring about, worth pitying, worth paying attention to; no dilemma they face is too petty.

No wonder Paramount Vantage decided to bury this.

Louiso's misfiring comedy feels less like a comic feast than a thrown-together assemblage of haphazardly nuked leftovers.

Like Schwartzman, Stiller devotes aptly excessive attention to the portrayal of a character too invested in trivial pursuits himself. It's the movie's one decent joke, but, in the absence of laughs, the most the actors can draw from it is a mere grin.

The film is an all-you-can-eat buffet of mediocrity. A spiraling vortex of boredom. A deflated Whoopee cushion.

Consider: A bad movie about cheesy a cappella and awful musical theater. What could be more excruciating?

so bereft of anything close to humor that one wonders if it was even meant to be a comedy in the first place.

As pointless and obnoxious as someone pulling on your ears.

It's badly written and inertly directed, with actors who don't have a clue what drives their characters.
