Hilarious, On-Par with Previous Christopher Guest Films
22 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Even without Eugene Levy and Michael McKean, Mascots is consistently hilarious and easily equal in terms of laughs to Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and Waiting for Guffman. The writing and improv are top-notch, and there are all sorts of surreal little moments involving costumed characters behind the scenes that bring new dimensions to the otherwise formulaic approach (it's a good formula, mind you, which is why Christopher Guest sticks with it). Zach Woods and Parker Posey are the biggest standouts this time around. Both actors bring tremendous depth and soul to their characters. Only Chris O'Dowd, who is usually brilliantly funny, comes across as never quite finding the right tone. Great cameo by Christopher Guest, reviving his role as Corky.
