About the Movie

Former high school musical star, Marc Pease (Jason Schwartzman), dreams of musical fame and fortune, but eight years after graduating finds himself stuck in the past. Passionately devoted to the music and his glory days, Marc has convinced his a capella singing group that they are on the cusp of success. But when his former high school music teacher (Ben Stiller) fails him as a mentor, Marc inadvertently discovers a side to his former teacher, and himself, that he never suspected. Packed with laugh-out-loud comedy and musical performances, The Marc Pease Experience is a hilarious yet heartwarming coming-of-age story.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Like Schwartzman, Stiller devotes aptly excessive attention to the portrayal of a character too invested in trivial pursuits himself. It's the movie's one decent joke, but, in the absence of laughs, the most the actors can draw from it is a mere grin. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's badly written and inertly directed, with actors who don't have a clue what drives their characters. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Consider: A bad movie about cheesy a cappella and awful musical theater. What could be more excruciating? – David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The film is an all-you-can-eat buffet of mediocrity. A spiraling vortex of boredom. A deflated Whoopee cushion. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

As a huge Anna Kendrick fan, I watch it just for her. I own most of her movies


Ben Stiller and Jason Schwartzman are two great actors. But this movie doesn't live up to the potential that the two of them combhined could have. This movie isn't the best, and If you like to waste money, or you just LOVE either Ben or Jason, then this movie is for you. If not, then go buy Zoolander, Mystery Men, or Night at the Museum.

Easily one of the Worst Films I've Ever Seen.

I wish I could think of something good to say about this...but I don't want to strain myself. I could have done without The Marc Pease "Experience" because, sucked.
