Now Available on DVD and Blu-Ray -- he Do-Deca Pentathlon (Review)

Do-Deca-Pentathlon [Blu-ray]

(Available Now Online and in Stores)

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!

Special Features: 

    ●    Meet the Real Brothers
    ●    Rock, Paper, Scissors with the Real Brothers

In The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, Mark (Steve Zissis) and Jeremy (Mark Kelly) re-initiate a 25-event childhood contest to determine once and for all who is the better brother.

My Thoughts:

As I watched this movie, I thought to myself, "What would it be like if my brothers and I were to hold a competition come the holidays when we all get together?"  Growing up we loved competing against each other and would always try and one up the other person.  This new release deals with sibling rivalry of two brothers, who compete in 25 crazy events during a family reunion, to see which brother is the best.  They complete in games like ping ping, leg wrestling and laser tag, to name a few. 

This movie will have you laughing all the way through.  You will not only laugh at the two brothers competing, but if you have siblings, you will find yourself, like I was thinking about you used to compete as your child (and today as adults).  But, as the movie progresses and these move from event to event, these two grown men begin to find about more about one another, and what they thought about the other person is dispelled.  Can these problems put their differences aside and accept one another for their differences?  I am not going to spoil the ending for you. You'll just have to pick up this movie and find out for yourself. 

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD screener from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
