Film ** Extras *

The combined talents of Jason Schwartzman, Ben Stiller and Anna Kendrick can’t rescue this wan, mirthless comedy, which plays like Glee minus the wit, polish and banging one-liners.

As a smarmy egotist drama teacher mounting a high-school production of The Wiz, Stiller squeezes out a few laughs while Kendrick is kooky-appealing despite the low-calibre material. But Schwartzman comes unstuck as an ill-defined a cappella-group frontman. It’s not entirely his fault, though – Todd Louiso’s draggy direction saps any energy his starry trio muster.
