    I saw this at the Tribeca film festival last night, and it was a laughriot. The premise is that a Texas little person mascot dies and wantsto give $10 million to one of his two heirs, so he has them gather 5little people and 5 mascots each, to perform a bunch of crazychallenges. It's somewhere between Scavenger Hunt and Borat- sometimesit tries a little too hard to be offensive, and the ending is a tadweak, but it delivers on comedy most of the time. Nice to see JordanPrentice working too- he was hilarious as a depraved little person. Ihope it gets wide release!

    It has loads of gratuitous nudity, Jackass-level stunts such asalligator wrestling, and plenty of character-based humor from themascots- who range from loser slobs to furries to a gut-bustingly funnysilent bobblehead- and the "midgets," and little people including GaryColeman, playing a delightful parody of himself. Tasteless but funny,and plenty of lowbrow humor that usually hits the mark.

    Saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival and it lived up to all thebuzz about it. Dubbed as a cross between Borat and Jackass, I'ddefinitely agree. MVM is hilariously gross, shocking, and offensive,but all in a good way. On top of it all throw in angry Gary Coleman andthis movie is really really funny.

    The premise is that a deceased little person, former-mascot, porn-mogulsets up a contest in his will between a team of mascots and littlepeople each led by his d-bag son and gold digger 3rd wife. The contestpits the little people and mascots in crazy contests like alligatorwrestling, "how may insults does it take to get punched", and drinkinggames.

    While the absurdity of all of the contests is great, it's really thecharacters themselves that make the film. All of the characters havegreat one-liners at some point throughout and i can't wait to see itagain to pick up on the ones i missed.

    I really hope it goes to a wide release so I can bring my friends.

    OK, I have to admit I did not think midgets vs mascots was going to beany good, and I was bummed my husband talked me into going. But I haveto say, I laughed almost every minute of this little movie. Sometimes Iwas a little ashamed at how much I was laughing, as the jokes andscenes are totally wrong and offensive, but the whole thing struck meas just ridiculous and hilarious. I don't know how much of it was shotreal, but it looks real, and in my mind I laughed like it was real.This movie is at my raunch comedy limit, but I don't think I've seen amovie in a long time that had this many laughs in it. It might be awhole new genre of low budget shock comedy…..as I'm convincing myselfthere are plenty of warped senses of humor out there.

    If you have a sense of humor and aren't easily offended, thisshockumentary is something you'll enjoy. Hesitant at first, the wittybanter, shock value and character interaction easily won me over.

    In an attempt to showcase his two favorite groups of people, Big Redsends five mascots and five midgets on a 30-day challenge to competefor this inheritance money, leading to hospitalizations, arrests andgreat entertainment. Participants competed in outrageous and hilariousstunts ranging from field races and drinking competitions to gatorwrestling and fight clubs, doing whatever it took to win the $1million.

    From the sharts, fights, nudity and absurdity, this movie will notdisappoint.

    The film's website describes it as a kind of Borat-meets-Jackass.Sounded interesting, so I attended one of the Tribeca showings. Thedescription turned out to be right on — lots of wild stunts, plenty ofoffensive material, and (believe it or not) a really good performanceby Gary Coleman, though it's hard to tell if he was acting. The goodnews is that it was better than many of the raunchy (andnot-so-raunchy) comedies that have come out over the last 4-5 years.And despite all of the nastiness, the film delivers a pretty decentmessage at the end as the little people pull together and the mascotsgive them some respect. Overall, it's worth seeing. Just don't takeyour grandmother.

    This movie is downright funny. Crude at times but if you like the humorit's a must-see. Five midgets and five mascots compete in challengesfor 30 days to win a million dollars. The benefactor, little Richard'sfather, is a midget as well and will provide the money to the winningteam. Both teams battle through challenges ranging from crocodilewrestling to beer chugging. The mascots try to complete the challengesin their suits while the "little people" (to be politically correct)combat discrimination and attempt to beat the mascots twice their size.The movie ends in a funny and feel good way, and although the endingcould use some work, it is defiantly worth seeing.

    My buddy talked me into going to see this movie when it premiered inDallas last weekend. I had no idea what I was in for but it was ariot!! I can't believe I hadnt heard of this movie! It combines all thehilarity of Jackass and Borat. The movie is set-up as a fakedocumentary- following a team of 5 midgets and 5 mascots duke it outfor a $1 million dollars a piece (as part of an inheritance competitionset-up by this famous midget porn mogul who dies). The plot of themovie was a little weak but the one-liners and scenes such as GaryColeman starting a fight with a guy three-times his size and analligator mascot wrestling a real alligator only to have his arm bittenoff make this movie definitely worth the money. Just know that thismovie is definitely high in raunchiness and probably isn't the bestthing to bring granny to. I will definitely be buying this movie andwatching it over and over again!! Seriously, you gotta see this!

    I was lucky enough to see this movie a couple of weeks ago and it wasabsolutely hilarious! I honestly could not stop laughing the entiretime! The entire theme of the movie is down right hysterical. GaryColeman's overall attitude and sarcasm throughout the film had melaughing so hard my stomach hurt! The concept is that a deceasedlittler person sets up a contest where a team of midgets and a team ofmascot compete against each other for a prize of $ 10 million. Myfavorite movies are pineapple express and Jackass, and after seeing MVMI have to admit that it is definitely up there! I would not recommendtaking your mother or grandmother to this movie because some of thejokes are a bit crude but if you enjoy that kind of humor, like I do,you will absolutely love this film!

    There's been Good vs. Bad, Trump vs Rosie, Obama vs. McCain, Heroes vs.Villains, and now there's finally Midgets vs. Mascots a Jackass likefilm involving a group of dwarfs and a group of costumes nobodieschallenging each other to a series of competition to compete to get 30points. The winning team's team captain will get $5,000,000 forhimself, and another $5,000,000 to split amongst the team. The losergets the glory of being a loser.

    Thats the extent of the film. Nothing is accomplished. The film is 90minutes of jokes and hilarious events. The Best Tolerance of an actorin any movie goes to Gary Coleman entirely. In scenes of this film heis at his meanest and is up to his neck (not to high) in frustration.He was angry with the producers for showing him going full frontalnudity in the movie. Though it is said on the Midgets vs. Mascotswebsite the contract Coleman signed stated that he agreed for theproducers to use any footage of him in the film they wanted. So,Coleman's screwed.

    It is unclear if he wanted to do the film in the first place seeing ashe was mostly frustrated the whole movie. Though saying the funniestquotes and lines I have ever heard. It seems he wanted money mainlybecause he has not had much famous work since his early roles. I haveread in numerous cases that he will die this year, which will betragic, but lets face it, his health is diminishing.

    I must say for a small company like First Look Studios, to releaseunknown flops like Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film forTheaters, Meet Bill, and most recently Suicide Girls: Guide to Living.To release a movie entitled Midgets vs. Mascots and to not have JasonAcuna (Wee-Man) in it take some strong guts. Wee-Man is known for beingthe world's famous dwarf, we have Jason Mewes, Gary Coleman, SCOTTIEPIPPEN, but no Wee-Man. Excusing that small loophole, the film is stillgreat, and lives on like a Jackass sequel.

    Starring: Gary Coleman, Scottie Pippen, and Jason Mewes. Directed by:Ron Carlson.
