What happens to a rich, neurotic family when one of their own writes a tell-all exposing their dirty secrets? The Meyerwitz family is about to find out. And the timing couldn't be more hilariously awful. As the Meyerwitz clan prepares for the 70th birthday of nasty family patriarch HENRY (Ron Rifkin), PEEP WORLD, the expose written by youngest son NATHAN (Ben Schwartz) has gone red hot, making a mess of all of their lives. JACK (Michael C. Hall), the oldest son, is failing in his career and now has to bend over backwards to convince his wife LAURA (Judy Greer) that certain, ahem, salacious… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Judging by the actors involved in Barry Blaustein's amusing but unpolished comedy, it's fair to assume he has a friends in high places. That's good, since they refine Peter Himmelstein's rough script."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A a family circus of dysfunction that's so familiar you may feel tempted to place bets on how everything will shake out, and painless enough that you might not resent doing so."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"PEEP WORLD plays out like a 90 minute episode of your favorite sitcom"
‑ Chase Whale, Gordon and the Whale
"There's no arc to what's on screen, because the film essentially begins right before the real story's climax, draws things out for 90 minutes and ends with a thud."
‑ Robert Levin, Film School Rejects
"One more fighting dysfunctional family has its screen portrait painted and we've seen it all before, done much, much better."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The heavy-handed "Peep World" has a few laughs sprinkled over its abbreviated running time as it limps to a predictable conclusion."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Peep World subjects us to a series of comic situations that might kindly be called contrived."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Overwhelmingly unfunny chaos. The filmmakers can't quite decide if they're making a cartoon here, and that fumbling indecision spoils the integrity of the displayed emotions."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The film draws its laughs from the suffering of its characters, knocking them against each other while jury-rigging a spindly plot from their in-fighting."
‑ Jesse Cataldo, Slant Magazine
"Dysfunction rages more behind the camera than in front, the amateurish direction matched by hackneyed writing. Simply put: this faltering family plot cries out for a whole other kind of family plot."
‑ Kimberly Gadette, Indie Movies Online
"By turns flat and strained, "Peep World" is a collection of personality disorders in search of a story."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Something's simply wrong when a film with so many comedians yet so few laughs turns Lesley Ann Warren, using plain old-school reaction shots, into the comic MVP."
‑ Karina Longworth, Village Voice
"Flawed family comedy has plenty of conflict, little point."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"The ... problem ... is how instantly and repeatedly Peep World recalls TV's Arrested Development ... but not as funny."
‑ Andy Klein, Brand X
"After all this set-up, there's no real release, no payoff to all the balls the creators have put in the air..a movie that has the right feel but none of the delivery."
‑ Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine
