"Supercon" is a poor stab at Christopher Guest-style ensemble antics combined with a rote heist plot.
A crassly sophomoric spoof directed and cowritten by Zak Knutson that squanders a criminal amount of proven comic talent.
Though devoted fanboys may find it worth a chuckle or two on streaming outlets, most will find it as unsatisfying as a photo op with an extra from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
Supercon has its moments, although not nearly enough of them, and its grossest-of-gross-out scenes might be disgusting enough to cause John Waters to wince.
"Supercon" offers lip service to fan culture, yet it is difficult to imagine who would enjoy watching this ill-conceived satire.
It might entertain a rowdy teen boy but is likely to make pretty much everyone else roll their eyes.
There's a need for a snarky, cynical look at the con experience from the inside. Supercon could have been that film, but it went too low-brow to deliver on its potential.
The movie only forgets some actual comedy and to make the assorted heroes likeable. Other than that, it's still pretty bad.
Standing in line for three hours to pay $100 for an autograph is more fun thank this movie.
What makes the film fun is how it spoofs the whole world of fans eager to see the TV stars of their youth without making those fans the butt of the joke.
Utterly hopeless and downright lazy, unwilling to satirize the juicy details of the convention circuit (especially its vicious game of profiteering), preferring to slap poop on everything and call it a day.
It's hard to take any of Supercon's over-the-top silliness seriously, and the increasingly-bizarre hijinks are just funny enough to recommend for open-minded folks not easily offended by patently politically-incorrect fare.
