This first feature by independent producer Peter McCarthy is fairly lightweight, but the cast and low-rent production credits have a certain charm.

Because the speechifying lacks the cutting comic edge that distinguishes good satire, Floundering too often blubbers when it should be viciously funny.

Floundering has floundered so thoroughly by the time of this catharsis that it, like everything else in the film, falls flat.

For those who enjoy their comedy with an edge and don't mind the occasional preaching, there's a real winner to be found in Floundering.
