The Do-Deca-Pentathlon (2012) DVD9
Jeremy (Mark Kelly) and Mark (Steve Zissis) are middle-aged brothers who haven't spoken to each other in years. Their falling-out happened in the wake of a competition they created as teenagers. The event was called "The Do-Deca-Pentathlon," an athletic event in which the brothers would compete in 25 sports ranging from pool to boxing to go-cart racing to ping-pong. The conclusion of the contest (and who actually won) was hotly debated for quite some time, and it caused a permanent rift between the siblings. Now, the two find themselves reunited at their mother's house for a weekend. Jeremy—currently a professional poker player—is just as hyper-competitive as ever and is eager to challenge Mark to a do-over. Mark is now a responsible working adult with a wife (Jennifer Lafleur, Baghead) and son (Reid Williams), and initially resists Jeremy's attempts to draw him into conflict. However, before long the two brothers find themselves recreating the ridiculous athletic challenges of their youth. Who will win the Do-Deca-Pentathlon and earn the coveted position of Better Brother for All Eternity?
