  • Summary: A comic junket behind-the-scenes of the world's most exclusive power-broker retreat. The true story: the richest, most powerful white men in America gather each summer in Northern California for a super secret retreat that takes them back to their sophomore year in college. For fifty-one weeks a year they run the country. For one week they run amuck. They're there to unwind, but they get really unwound when that secrecy is threatened. (Visionbox Pictures) Expand

  1. 63
    Feels conceived and shot on the fly -- like between lunch breaks for Shearer's radio show and his ''Simpson'' voice-overs.
  2. 50
    Fitfully entertaining molehill of a movie.
  3. 40
    A satirist such as Shearer should need a license to go hunting on terrain so rich with easy targets; he tries to bag them all, and it leaves the film to founder in aimlessness.
  4. Falls short of the mark, content to shoot fish in a barrel.
  5. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    It doesn't meet the minimum number of laughs to qualify as a comedy -- two would have clinched it -- and it's far too asinine to be taken seriously.
  6. It's utterly frustrating: What could and should have been biting and droll is instead a tepid waste of time and talent.
