Over-the-top mock-docu comedy isn't all that funny; no kids.

Is It Any Good?

MoCap, LLC uses the increasingly popular mockumentary format, providing a "behind-the-scenes" look at a struggling company. When it's done well (a la The Office), this approch offers characters the chance to directly explain their aspirations and motivations during key dramatic moments. When done poorly, as it is here, it serves more as a crutch that the writers use to string together a bunch of loosely connected scenes that don't really fit together into a narrative.

The basic premise -- that the company is so desperate they'll take on any gig -- gives the creators license to throw in almost anything. Let's torture the guy in the blue suit! What about an Apocalypse Now spoof! Hey, can we paint the intern green? These scenes play more like skits from Saturday Night Live (and not during one of the show's better seasons) than a coherent story.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
