Critic Reviews for Dealing With Idiots

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12)

  • "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.

  • [A] flat, aimless comedy skewering the parents of junior baseball players.

  • Garlin's ultra-restrained approach suggests that attempting hilarity is sometimes a veiled defense mechanism.

  • The movie was largely improvised, which lends itself more to scenes than a feature-length film.

  • There are a few inspired moments, but Garlin goes for easy laughs, and the actors' broad improvisations often fall flat.

  • 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.
