Critic Reviews for Surviving Eden
Reality TV, says one character in Greg Pritikin's Surviving Eden, makes you stupid and ill. The movie tries hard to prove it.
Although early scenes hold out some promise that this parody of Survivor could amount to something, the movie quickly runs out of ideas.
Surviving Eden is the sort of hapless vanity project where even the outtakes at the end aren't funny.
Writer/director Greg Pritikin has created a reality-TV satire as clueless as the self-impressed 'stars' it scorns.
The movie insists that we care deeply about its sad sack protagonist as some sort of Chaplin-esque victim of vanity and greed. But neither Pritkin's conception nor Panes' performance warrants such sympathy.
Audience Reviews for Surviving Eden
This mockumentary misses the mark. There are some occasionally funny moments, but just not enough of them to make it work. I did enjoy Conchata Farrell and Peter Dinklage. It almost makes it.
