The Do-Deca Pentathlon

JOY REVIEW

THE DO-DECA PENTATHALON was written and directed by Jay and Marc Duplass. Marc Duplass has been in everything this year, including being one of the best things in My Sister’s Sister. And this one apparently is somewhat autobiographical of two grown brothers who were competitive and estranged, and end up sort of getting together and secretly reviving their competition to the chagrin of one of their wives. This is really very touching and great fun. There was only one time where it really lagged, where they showed all the competitions twice. Clearly let’s not pad our movie. But it really is fun. It tells you a lot about sibling rivalry and how we carry the hurts of our childhood into our adulthood. I give it four stars.
