Not Good - Mr. Peepers vs. George Michael Bluth
27 September 2013 | by (Athens, GA) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by the 6.6 on IMDb. This movie is not good. I understand having to stretch $40K to make a decent film is hard, but the fact that Fife is even in this movie is a joke. His speech impediment is distracting, and the fact that they cast Cerie (30 Rock) as his (Michael Cera and Chris Kattan's lovechild) ex is a travesty. What a waste of a pretty face.

To its credit, the sound in this movie is great. Fife's older brother did a great job in that regard. The cinematography is actually pretty good. The script and the acting, though, are too bad to overcome. The claims that this duo is anti-establishment and "stuck it to the man" are grossly misstated. The man doesn't buy these guys' brand of humor because it's not funny.
