Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if Saw the new bread and puppet. See it if you like radical theater with puppets.

"Topics that called for farce, drama, or satire were reduced to feel-good images and naïve dichotomies…A generation that came of age with Stewart’s 'Daily Show' expects to be given some information when a news story is lampooned. All Schumann offers is stupid villains and innocent victims…There are, however, moments of raucous anarchy that are exhilarating enough to banish second thoughts…So a good time is to had, but true believers will be entertained the most."

And the bread is good, too."
