Editorial Reviews

Two grown men take sibling rivalry to new heights of hilarity in this winning comedy with heart. All bets are off during a family reunion when estranged brothers Mark (Steve Zissis) and Jeremy (Mark Kelly) secretly resurrect a decades-old quest to be the best. Determined to complete 25 outrageous events in order to crown a true champion, the exhausted pair find themselves leg wrestling, ping-ponging, and laser tagging to the finish line...while learning a few life lessons along the way. Written and directed by the comically competitive Duplass Brothers (Cyrus), The Do-Deca-Pentathlon brings home the gold - and the laughs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Slice of Life September 17, 2012
By ReCynd
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Two brothers, each pushing middle age, and each with their own set of baggage, breathe new life into an old and unfinished piece of business at a gathering at Mom's house (the old family home) for a family birthday party. The Do-Deca-Pentathlon is an epic battle of strength and mettle, and is comprised of a series of 25 quasi-sports events (ping-pong, skeeball, arm-wrestling, air hockey, breath-holding, push-ups, laser tag, go-kart racing, etc.). The game ends after 13 of the 25 games are won, and the prize is the the coveted "Best Brother" title. And so it goes.

I loved this independent film: it was not unnecessarily complicated (a breath of fresh air), the characters and the situations were wholly relatable, and for the most part, everybody was nice to each other, even when they didn't want to be. At just over an hour long, the story never lagged. I am very happy I took a chance on this quirky film I'd never heard of...and so will you, I'd wager.

5.0 out of 5 stars great July 5, 2012

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The acting was great and the editing was fantastic. it's a story about sibling rivalry and life expectation gone wrong. sometimes the only way to tell someone you love them is to have a not so friendly competition to find out who is the best at life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny And Entertaining October 27, 2012
Format:DVD
This is a very entertaining film which I enjoyed thoroughly. It is smart in an unobtrusive way and funny, too. But mostly, The Do-Deca-Pentathlon is a poignant drama which explores the estrangement of filial love gone terribly wrong. The immediate theme which is developed with great humor and insight is competition and who's better. The struggle (which takes place over 25 grueling tests of physical exertion) is one of honor as much as of prowess. The mystery of what's ultimately at stake propels the narrative forward. The Do-Deca-Pentathlon is a very male film. The woman characters are depicted as wretched and helpless in the face of hormone-driven adolescence run amok in middle aged men. This is a deftly constructed film from the Duplass brothers whose always interesting work seems to be maturing quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Movie! September 26, 2012
Format:DVD
Talk about sibling rivalry to the max! This was a funny movie that lets you see that sibling rivalry does not always fade with time and age. Through a series of events, these two brothers battle it out to see who can win. While much of the movie is tongue-in-cheek, you can also see that the brothers do learn a few things along the way as well. While I did not know whether I would like this movie at first, I found the movie to be downright funny and the acting to be of high quality. If you are looking for a fun evening that you will not soon forget, this is definitely the movie for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars "VERY FUNNY FROM START TO FINISH!" July 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a story of two brothers, each over age forty, who decide to Compete in a bunch of games to see who is More superior. They decide that by the choice they made, they would be better in moving on in life in the Right direction. Very Funny And Entertaining from start to finish. Many families would relate to the 'who's better thing' and get a kick out of the show these guys perform to come out as a winner. Laugh-out-loud fun, enjoyable and Highly Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Grown Men Compete Like Juveniles September 12, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
"The Do-Deca-Pentathlon" is about two grown men who take sibling rivalry to hilarious heights. Mark (Steve Zissis) is a thirty-something married guy with a preteen son, who never got over an event from his teen years when he and his brother Jeremy competed in a homegrown, 25-event Olympics-style competition to see who was the best brother. As adults, the overachieving, self-satisfied Jeremy (Mark Kelly) appears at Mark's birthday, turning what was to be a pleasant, low-key reunion into a confrontation that brings to the fore all of Mark's numerous, poorly hidden insecurities. When Jeremy suggests a re-do of their teen feats, Mark takes the bait, as Jeremy knew he would.

The goofy "events" of the pseudo Olympics include miniature golf, ping-pong, laser tag, and leg wrestling, which offer plenty of opportunity for visual gags. Essentially, the movie is a one-joke comedy, with two adults acting like kids to "one-up" each other. However, the movie does examine the frequently awkward connection between siiblings, a subject we don't see covered a lot in movies.

The filmmakers, Mark and Jay Duplass, have stated that the film is based on brothers who lived near them when they were kids, but it's hard not to think that the feelings conveyed in this movie -- if not the actual events -- are autobiographical. Blu-ray extras include the featurettes "Meet the Real Brothers" and "Rock, Paper, Scissors With the Real Brothers."

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun on the run August 14, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A surprisingly humorous find. Lighthearted and cute at times with some intensely heavy moments shot in a hand held voyeuristic style. The camera follows an unexpected family gathering on the occasion of a troubled middle-aged man's umpteenth birthday crashed by his brother and childhood nemesis who was originally left off the invitation list. Upon his arrival, a few days drive from las vegas in a stylish American sports sedan, plans for a modest, suburban, birthday celebration, turns into a crazy, disengagement from reality where every ounce of conscience is challenged by a duel between brothers of semi-epic proportions. Obviously, as things pan out, the unpredictability is certain,, specifically in the attitude and emotions that maneuver the storyline. Not sure what I meant by that...in all, the movie is good for three run troughs, I'm on my second.
