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.

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.

The heavy-handed "Peep World" has a few laughs sprinkled over its abbreviated running time as it limps to a predictable conclusion.

Peep World subjects us to a series of comic situations that might kindly be called contrived.

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.

A well written film in terms of structure however there wasn't much going on. It was quite bland and predictable. A good cast seems wasted.

In "Peep World," misery is nothing new for the Meyerwitz siblings. Jack's(Michael C. Hall) architecture business is foundering badly, just as he… More
