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.
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.
Consider: A bad movie about cheesy a cappella and awful musical theater. What could be more excruciating?
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.
If anyone were going to like The Marc Pease Experience, it would be me, and I didn't.
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.
absolute waste of time why ben stiller put he's name to this is beyond me.
The Marc Pease Experience is a typical underdog story with the atypical Schwartzman at the helm, producing a unique adventure into the life of what appear to be normal people. Without Stiller, Marc Pease would truly feel like the low budget film that it is, but with the star power Marc Pease comes off more like the film Election, with Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon. Regardless of what draws you to the film, The Marc Pease Experience remains a solid little comedic production.
"Okay, here's what you don't understand: things just don't stay the same. Not on their own they don't. It's like grandma used to say: "If you leave the door wide open, everyone's just gonna walk right out." Just like Rob Gentry did!"
Former high school musical star, Marc Pease, finds himself still living in the past, eight years after graduating.
