Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

Cheesier than a capella Coldplay

THEY CAN SING: But will they ever grow up?

It’s not so much the music that’s annoying about college a cappella (though it’s that, too) as the self-satisfied guys, with their matching khakis and quirky vests, singing their hearts out, one dude slapping at his chest. More annoying still is a college a cappella group closing in on 40 — while dealing with marriage, divorce, job loss, hair loss, and kid-having — who reunite to sing at a pal’s wedding in the Hamptons. The men in Bruce Leddy’s cloying comedy don’t seem to have grown up since the “peak experience” of singing their senior show: they play frisbee golf, pants one another, talk about the length of their dicks, get trashed, drool over a Swedish nanny, and call another douche — except that now instead of cheap beer they’re drinking chai-tea martinis. Lewd-talking Molly Shannon stands out; so does Chris Bowers as the sex god. Otherwise, this one’s as cheesy as the Coldplay, John Mayer, and Ben Folds Five numbers the guys sing.
