Heartwarming
21 December 2009 | by mcravenerSee all my reviews

To balance the comment from Dec 10, I watched the film on its own merits. I must say I found 'The Marc Pease Experience' enjoyable. Jason Schwartzman did well in portraying the boy-man stuck in fear and in life, but who finally finds voice and his way. I liked Ben Stiller's schlocky affectations as the 'virtuoso' high school music director. Jason Schwartzman did fine with his role. The characters were slightly formulaic, perhaps, but the acting worked and you were pulled into the plot and movie. Predictable is not always a bad thing. The film was light-hearted but still had some human dilemmas you could emphasize with. All in all this was a pleasant and heartwarming film.
