Something of a Throwaway
14 November 2016 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

From the preview on Netflix, this looked pretty funny, and having seen most of Christopher Guest's movies, I had plenty of reason to think the preview was accurate.

But the film as a whole is lacking. It has too much down time, too many characters we have little reason to care about. The structure and plot are almost exactly the same as "Best in Show". It is as though Guest took Netflix's money and just switched from dogs to mascots.

Some parts were better than others. Parker Posey, as always, is fantastic. And some of the mascot routines were good -- the Plumber routine, as well as the Hedgehog. I did like the idea of the armadillo having tire tracks on it.
