PEEP WORLD plays out like a 90 minute episode of your favorite sitcom
July 18, 2011
Overwhelmingly unfunny chaos. The filmmakers can't quite decide if they're making a cartoon here, and that fumbling indecision spoils the integrity of the displayed emotions.

Flawed family comedy has plenty of conflict, little point.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 28, 2011
There's no arc to what's on screen, because the film essentially begins right before the real story's climax, draws things out for 90 minutes and ends with a thud.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 27, 2011
The film draws its laughs from the suffering of its characters, knocking them against each other while jury-rigging a spindly plot from their in-fighting.

The ... problem ... is how instantly and repeatedly Peep World recalls TV's Arrested Development ... but not as funny.
March 25, 2011
Judging by the actors involved in Barry Blaustein's amusing but unpolished comedy, it's fair to assume he has a friends in high places. That's good, since they refine Peter Himmelstein's rough script.

One more fighting dysfunctional family has its screen portrait painted and we've seen it all before, done much, much better.
March 25, 2011
Dysfunction rages more behind the camera than in front, the amateurish direction matched by hackneyed writing. Simply put: this faltering family plot cries out for a whole other kind of family plot.

March 25, 2011
After all this set-up, there's no real release, no payoff to all the balls the creators have put in the air..a movie that has the right feel but none of the delivery.
March 25, 2011
The heavy-handed "Peep World" has a few laughs sprinkled over its abbreviated running time as it limps to a predictable conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 24, 2011
By turns flat and strained, "Peep World" is a collection of personality disorders in search of a story.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 24, 2011
A a family circus of dysfunction that's so familiar you may feel tempted to place bets on how everything will shake out, and painless enough that you might not resent doing so.

Himmelstein and Blaustein give us just a peep, when what we really want is a nice, long gape.
March 24, 2011
While it's nice to see TV actors get a crack at the bigger screen, Peep World barely seems like a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
March 23, 2011
Peep World subjects us to a series of comic situations that might kindly be called contrived.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 22, 2011
Something's simply wrong when a film with so many comedians yet so few laughs turns Lesley Ann Warren, using plain old-school reaction shots, into the comic MVP.
March 22, 2011
Unreeling like the discarded spawn of 'The Royal Tenenbaums,' it strikes a sour note in the increasingly overcrowded dynfunctional 'black comedy' genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
March 21, 2011
...the film's so flat and sour that when the whole cast are gathered together around a communal dinner table, all you want to do is escape the acid, claustrophobic rancor of its unpleasantness.
