Dumbstruck DVD Review



Synopsis: DUMBSTRUCK focuses on five ventriloquists, who are quirky enough to star in Christopher Guest’s Best in Show. But they are real, and their stories are deeply human and universal: Dylan, a shy 13-year-old who dreams of being a professional but whose dad prefers football; Kim, a former Miss Ohio beauty queen, who yearns to ‘make it’ on the cruise ship circuit; Dan, a successful cruise ship performer whose wife may divorce him when he comes ashore; Terry, who, after 22 years of struggle in Corsicana, Texas, finds himself on NBC’s America’s Got Talent with a chance to win $1 million; and Wilma -- all six-foot-five of her -- who brings her dummies to Walmart and ‘entertains’ in senior homes. With its heart firmly planted on its polyester sleeve, DUMBSTRUCK takes the American dream sideways and never loses its way.

Review: We love documentaries here at the Legion.  In fact, we can't get enough of them....even this one.  I won't lie, I have a low tolerance for ventriloquism, but this look inside the lives of five professional ventriloquists was fantastic.  It was great to get an inside look at their world and their struggles as performers!
