Critic Reviews for The Climb
For all the absurdist laughs (and not a few cringes) both men wring from it, their interplay feels both inherently ridiculous and entirely true to life; a bittersweet bromance writ in whiskey and spandex.
"The Climb" often gets in its own way. Just like its characters don't know when enough is enough, neither does Covino.
It's often quite funny, but it's also sad. It's grounded, but with all these tiny touches of surrealism.
Cringe comedy's premise is that old wisdom about train wrecks and why we can't help but stop and stare despite ourselves, and Covino and Marvin's movie is a convincing case in point.
The Climb entertains while capturing the cycle of two schlemiels whose bond exceeds the sum of their parts.
