Midgets vs Mascots
Time Out says
It might sound like a so-bad-it’s-good cult film, but no. ‘Midgets vs Mascots’ is an over-conceived, poorly-scripted mockumentary that fails to reach for the laughs even when they’re close at hand. The two teams travel the US insulting strangers and trying to get punched in bars but it’s clear that most passers-by are at least briefed, if not rehearsed. ‘Borat’ succeeded by exposing the prejudice of the public – this skips that opportunity entirely and focuses on set-up spats and shags.
The drunk or the stupid may find one or two moments amusing. But otherwise, this stands as a sad swansong to Coleman, who closes the film with the words, ‘I’m gonna bash my fists into my agent’s face right when I get back.' Well, quite.
