  • 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.

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    August 21, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • The Marc Pease Experience is likable enough; it's just no Rushmore.

    August 21, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Consider: A bad movie about cheesy a cappella and awful musical theater. What could be more excruciating?

    August 20, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    some good moments to be had, stiller is on form as a arogant high school drama teacher putting on the wiz, for the 2nd time, after 8 years previously student schwartznman, lost it on stage, who now is living his life with still big dreams on starting a acapella group, sometimes story doesent gel fully, but the two leads keep it watchable, steve coogen did something similer with a diferent story in the film hamlet 2, which if you like this, you should seek out
