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

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

If anyone were going to like The Marc Pease Experience, it would be me, and I didn't.

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

No wonder Paramount Vantage decided to bury this.

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.

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.

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

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.
