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!

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.

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.

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.

One of the tricks to writing a drama script is saying things a bit larger than life but still making them seem conversational. Here, the story is more on the small side so the conversation really needs to sound true to the ear but not boring. For my dollar the Duplass brothers really nailed it.

Here's the scoop. Jeremy makes his living playing poker. His brother, Mark, consults on, and markets, pet food. The two held a 25 event do-deca pentathlon when they were kids. It ended in a tie due to grandpa's intervening in the final event. Mark has never gotten over this and the two have had near zero contact ever since. Mark flies, with his wife and son, to his mum's house for his birthday. Jeremy shows up and the pot starts to boil once more.

This seemed to get rather lukewarm reviews from most but I liked it a lot. Like their later "Jeff Who Lives at Home", the Duplass brothers bring you into a world with normal people who are trying to work through something. It isn't big to the world but it's big to them and they are able to draw the viewer to the character's world and have it mean something to them as well. Maybe because the set-up is a bit silly (a childhood rivalry blown up beyond all possible belief) there is a humorous undertone happening, but this is a drama, just not one that is of 'life or death' proportions. I thought the small cast was spot on. The brothers were cast well and Jennifer Lefleur, as Marks' wife was so real it was scary. The setting, a middle of the road house, added to the regular-ness of the whole thing. There was a lot of natural lighting and hand-held camera that furthered the whole thing even more. The music score underlined the above mentioned humor but settled down when necessary.

This is not a big movie. It's a true independent endeavor but for me, that was what made it a real gem to watch.

Seriously Funny and Sensitive! Co-Stars Mark Kelly (Jeremy) and Steve Zissis (Mark) rock this film about two brothers estranged for years because of an unfinished competition between the two of them they created in high school. The winner of 25 ridiculous sporting events would determine who was the "champion" for all time. A family reunion brings them back together to recreate the events that will decide the true champion once and for all. This is a fabulously funny and endearing family film. One for your home film library. You will want to watch this again and again!
The entire cast is absolutely wonderful!!

Movie: Funny, Awesome new contests you can do against family, and of course the heart felt moment. 4.5 out of 5. Just wish it was a little bit longer but for this type of movie, very good.

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!
