27: Peep World (uuuuuggggggghhhhhhh)

Peep World – March 25, 2011
Starring: Ben Schwartz, Sarah Silverman, Michael C. Hall, Judy Greer, Rainn Wilson, Ron Rifkin
Written by: Peter Himmelstein
Directed by: Barry W. Blaustein

The plot: “On the day of their Father’s 70th birthday party, four siblings come to terms with the publication of a novel written by the youngest sibling, that exposes the family’s most intimate secrets.” – IMDB

My thoughts: Ignore the Laurel leaves on the cover of the movie, this movie was a complete and utter disappointment. It had such promise – an amazing cast and a potentially awesome plot. And yet I found myself bored and wishing the movie would pick up. But it didn’t.

There was a hot second with Ben Schwartz (known to Parks & Rec fans as Jean-Ralphio) and a raging erection that I found to be humorous but the moment quickly came and went. My real dilemma is that this movie starts off at the climax and then pulls the whole “let’s found out how we got here”. Well done, I liked the idea. The problem was, it didn’t deliver. The characters were almost fleshed out and the plots were almost interesting. But it just didn’t play out as anticipated. And to top it all off, you can mark it as being yet another movie that doesn’t bother take full advantage of the the spectacular Judy Greer.

Peep World was like the bad nephew in your family. You give it the benefit of the doubt and you can see what potential it has but all it does is lets you down. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of one of the actors, don’t bother.

Stars: 1/5
