Movie Info

A comic junket behind-the-scenes of the world's most exclusive power-broker retreat. The true story: the richest, most powerful white men in America gather each summer in Northern California for a super secret retreat that takes them back to their sophomore year in college. For fifty-one weeks a year they run the country. For one week they run amuck. They're there to unwind, but they get really unwound when that secrecy is threatened.

Critic Reviews for Teddy Bears' Picnic

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (6)

Pic lacks the development needed for a full-length feature and, following a hilarious opening sequence, it becomes tiresomely one-note.

February 25, 2009 | Full Review…

Most of the film feels conceived and shot on the fly -- like between lunch breaks for Shearer's radio show and his Simpson voice-overs.

November 22, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4

The satire is unfocused, while the story goes nowhere.

April 5, 2002 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It is supremely unfunny and unentertaining to watch middle-age and older men drink to excess, piss on trees, b.s. one another and put on a show in drag.

April 3, 2002

A beyond-lame satire, Teddy Bears' Picnic ranks among the most pitiful directing debuts by an esteemed writer-actor.

March 29, 2002 | Rating: .5/4

Too much of it feels unfocused and underdeveloped.

March 28, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/5
