News & Interviews for Mascots
Critic Reviews for Mascots
Guest never wanders too far from his comedic safe zone: He is a master at finding humor in how seriously we take ourselves. But no one is complaining.
As a whole, though, Mascots only occasionally rises above "pretty okay." Guest's actors...commit to the material, but the improv isn't as consistently sharp... as it was in A Mighty Wind or Best in Show, and the movie ends up lagging because of it.
If you've seen one Christopher Guest film, you haven't exactly seen them all, but you certainly know the lay of the land. He's the king of the ensemble mockumentary ...
Mascots is determinedly minor-league. But like the bruschetta- and anchovy-scented cups sold at the event for male mascots to stuff into their costumes, it's offbeat and refreshing nonetheless.
Audience Reviews for Mascots
While this is a considerable improvement since the fiasco of For Your Consideration (even if I miss Catherine O'Hara and Chris O'Dowd is completely wasted), Guest's return to the mockumentary style has more misses than hits, being only really fun during the presentation in the end.
It has been 10 years since Guest's For Your Consideration. Unfortunately these two have shown a definite decline in this mockumentary subgenre. Most of the jokes and gags fall flat.
"Mascots" is a very funny film, but it lacks the spontaneity of Christopher Guest's earlier films. This film seems to be more heavily scripted and the lack of witty engagement among the ensemble is apparent.
