It should be a match made in comedy heaven – director and writer Christopher Guest, whose fake documentary films explore the sad desperation in American subcultures, turns his attention to the wacky world of sports mascots.The first half of the film – co-written by Guest and Jim Piddock – introduces the characters with interviews that reveal their sad yearnings and petty resentments.Missing are Guest regulars like Michael McKean, Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, and one wonders if they might have enlivened "Mascots".There are some bright spots, notably the excellent Irish actor O'Dowd as the brutish mascot The Fist and Susan Yeagley playing the half-sister of Posey's character beautifully, almost as if she was in another movie.
