Entertaining Mocumentary
27 December 2010 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

In the same vein of This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind, The Flying Scissors is a mocumentary, i.e., a comedy disguised as a documentary. The subject is the game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. The film chronicles the lives of several aspiring RPS champions who are planning to attend the Nationals. As you would expect in a film like this, the contenders are a bunch of misfits with dysfunctional families and weird personal behaviors. About 3/4 of the movie is the exploration of the backgrounds of the players and tournament organizers. The final act, the tournament itself, is actually a bit of a let down after so much buildup. There just wasn't as much tension milked out of the contests as I thought could have been. Overall, I enjoyed this movie and recommend it for people who enjoy mocumentaries or the "sport" of RPS.
