    Sometimes Guest’s films stray into snobbery against flyover country, but Mascots mostly avoids that. It hides its toxic warfare under a furry guise.

    Guest isn’t fixing what isn’t broke, but after so long between movies, and with many more people tackling the style, it does leave Mascots at times feeling a bit overfamiliar.

    If you’re a Guest devotee, you’ll be in the stands cheering; otherwise, Mascots feels like a bit of a retread.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Sarah Kurchak

    It might be a lesser addition to the Guest oeuvre, but it’s a welcome one nonetheless

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    It’s offbeat and refreshing nonetheless.

  • Stephen Holden

    Although Mascots is neither as funny nor as satirically acute as its forerunner, it would be churlish to complain too loudly. And the sharpest verbal jokes in the screenplay by Mr. Guest and the actor and writer Jim Piddock are as inspired as ever. Mr. Guest’s gift for the archly comedic mot juste is undiminished.

  • Stephen Dalton

    The gentle tone and disjointed sketch-show structure here will appeal to long-standing fans, but Mascots wins no prizes for innovation or progression. The jokes are uneven, the caricatures often overly broad and the plot almost nonexistent.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    There are plenty of solid laughs in Mascots — everything from jokes about furries to throwaway bits involving obscure cable channels — but what’s disappointing is that there’s not a great overr-iding idea that ties all the gags together.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    There are an obscene number of funny people in this movie — though Mascots is not as obscenely funny as that Murderers’ Row of comedy talent would suggest.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    This is the fourth instalment in the Guest mockumentary 'canon' and it's evidence that the format has now solidified into a template that needs refreshing, as much gentle enjoyment as it might bring.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    While it's admirable that Guest is enthusiastically rooting for his characters, there's nothing particularly funny about it.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    As hard as it is to admit, Guest’s once-incisive satirical bite has grown dull in its familiarity. He doesn’t seem to be having as much fun here and neither are we. Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    The only thing Mascots has to be is laugh-out-loud funny, and yet, most of the time, the only things it elicits are reflexive chuckles and a sense of creeping boredom.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Unfortunately, this improvised film (Guest’s actors work off a detailed outline) contains the occasional titter but few guffaws.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It lopes along, merrily but a bit slack, always reminding you of the earlier Guest films, and then it works up a bit of a fizz in the competition.
