Tribeca Film Review: Ricky Gervais’ ‘Special Correspondents’

22 April 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ricky Gervais has yet to find another role as perfectly suited to his caustic sensibilities as “The Office” boss David Brent — or, for that matter, the impishly nasty, trash-talking persona he assumes for his Golden Globes hosting gigs. “Special Correspondents” doesn’t halt that streak, affording him a loser-makes-good part that’s as toothless as the rest of the film, about a cocky New York City news radio reporter and meek sound technician who unwittingly fake their way into the national spotlight. Written and directed by Gervais, it’s an overly long, if passable diversion whose star power should help it draw comedy-starved home viewers via Netflix, where it’ll exclusively live after its Tribeca Film Festival debut.

Based on the 2009 French comedy of the same name, “Special Correspondents” is predicated on the chemistry of its odd-couple leads — a seemingly solid plan undone by the milquetoast mildness of their bickering banter. »
