Surviving Eden Reviews

If not a gift to audiences, it is an unintentional trove of how-not-to tips for aspiring filmmakers.

The tribal council has spoken: this is a funny movie.

Reality TV, says one character in Greg Pritikin's Surviving Eden, makes you stupid and ill. The movie tries hard to prove it.

This comedy could use some polishing. With a little more style it could have been better, but there is a decent film inside this one somewhere.

Although early scenes hold out some promise that this parody of Survivor could amount to something, the movie quickly runs out of ideas.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Only Lynch's over-the-top network executive stands out in this otherwise bland film that tries for satire but neglects to be funny.

Surviving Eden is the sort of hapless vanity project where even the outtakes at the end aren't funny.

Writer/director Greg Pritikin has created a reality-TV satire as clueless as the self-impressed 'stars' it scorns.

No script, no stars, no nothing. What could go wrong?..Just because nothing did doesn't mean that the film is good.

Dan Lybarger

Writer-director Greg Pritkin ('Dummy') offers up a parody that's less enjoyable than the stuff he's mocking.

The movie insists that we care deeply about its sad sack protagonist as some sort of Chaplin-esque victim of vanity and greed. But neither Pritkin's conception nor Panes' performance warrants such sympathy.

This witless satire dares to take on the culture of -- get ready for this -- reality TV!

That it has nothing novel to say about the subject matter it's skewering is the film's largest failing.
