Movie Info

A freshman filmmaker follows Tim Heidecker during the final month of his campaign for district attorney. What begins as a profile of an outsider candidate facing an uphill battle evolves into a study of toxic delusion as Tim's motivations and controversial past begin to unravel his candidacy. Taking on a popular incumbent has found Tim and his inexperienced campaign manager outmatched. Low on funds, experience, and connections, Tim hits the streets in an attempt to connect with voters, but has difficulty winning over the community. With word of his campaign spreading, former associates of Tim try to warn the public with stories of bad business deals, strained friendships and a failed court case in which he found himself accused of murder. With days until the election and his campaign in free-fall, Tim has to confront the unexpected costs of pursuing his dream.

Critic Reviews for Mister America

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (8)

Running only a little shorter than the average season of On Cinema At The Cinema, it's never as cringe-inducingly funny or inventive as the webseries that spawned it.

October 9, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Prolific actor-comedian-musician Tim Heidecker may have a sizable cult following but it's doubtful he'll find many new fans with his latest effort, the tedious and laugh-free mockumentary "Mister America."

October 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Heidecker's comedy thrives in the liminal space between what's supposed to be funny and what's not, and the one thing he can't afford to do is stop to explain the joke.

October 9, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Mister America ambles through two overlapped realities (On Cinema's and our own) and reveals a pathos that makes its dry political comedy accessible beyond an ingrained fanbase, if not poignant.

October 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A witless, one-note political satire whose deficiencies are even more glaring when such humor feels entirely redundant to our current state of affairs.

October 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Although "Mister America" has inspired moments throughout, Tim's ignorance, insensitivity and ill-fitting tailoring aren't really good for 90 minutes of laughs.
