Critic Reviews for The Beta Test

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (18)

Tales of angsty alpha males who see the light are a cinematic sacred cow, yet lacking in clarity of vision or a cohesive world, "The Beta Test" comes out looking as confused as its antihero.

It is a really great Hollywood satire that I found amusing.

Cummings and co-director/co-star PJ McCabe are more adept at maintaining tone than a lot of better-known filmmakers.

November 5, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

An unstable and unfocused satire that dabbles haphazardly in issues of masculinity, temptation, digital identity, and reformed workplaces but does so with a brio that keeps it on edge.

The results won't help McCabe and Cummings land any well-paying sellout gigs any time soon. But if being a Hollywood insider is anything like it appears in this movie, is that really such a loss?

"The Beta Test" hinges on Cummings' magnetically deranged turn.
