The Do-Deca-Pentathlon
2012
Two brothers resurrect a two-person, 25-event "Olympics" (whose sports include pool and ping-pong) from their childhood for a family reunion. The silly competition may have been cute when they were kids, but now it's driving people away.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

I love the concept of this movie, but I don't love how it turned out. It ambles around in a low-key, lackadaisical manner, with scenes that serve only to stall because we know where the plot must go, and yet it still barely crosses the 75-minute mark. But it has a good cast, who get laughs just being these odd characters, and I enjoyed it in fits and starts. Mostly I want to put together my own event of this sort.
