There's been Good vs. Bad, Trump vs Rosie, Obama vs. McCain, Heroes vs. Villains, and now there's finally Midgets vs. Mascots a Jackass like film involving a group of dwarfs and a group of costumes nobodies challenging each other to a series of competition to compete to get 30 points. The winning team's team captain will get $5,000,000 for himself, and another $5,000,000 to split amongst the team. The loser gets the glory of being a loser.
Thats the extent of the film. Nothing is accomplished. The film is 90 minutes of jokes and hilarious events. The Best Tolerance of an actor in any movie goes to Gary Coleman entirely. In scenes of this film he is at his meanest and is up to his neck (not to high) in frustration. He was angry with the producers for showing him going full frontal nudity in the movie. Though it is said on the Midgets vs. Mascots website the contract Coleman signed stated that he agreed for the producers to use any footage of him in the film they wanted. So, Coleman's screwed.
It is unclear if he wanted to do the film in the first place seeing as he was mostly frustrated the whole movie. Though saying the funniest quotes and lines I have ever heard. It seems he wanted money mainly because he has not had much famous work since his early roles. I have read in numerous cases that he will die this year, which will be tragic, but lets face it, his health is diminishing.
I must say for a small company like First Look Studios, to release unknown flops like Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, Meet Bill, and most recently Suicide Girls: Guide to Living. To release a movie entitled Midgets vs. Mascots and to not have Jason Acuna (Wee-Man) in it take some strong guts. Wee-Man is known for being the world's famous dwarf, we have Jason Mewes, Gary Coleman, SCOTTIE PIPPEN, but no Wee-Man. Excusing that small loophole, the film is still great, and lives on like a Jackass sequel.
Starring: Gary Coleman, Scottie Pippen, and Jason Mewes. Directed by: Ron Carlson.
