    Aside from a little bit of laughs in the beginning, this movie is pretty much a lousy, immensly forgettable picture, one that makes you wish you would rather see peci getting hit by paint cans rather than lugging a bag full of severed heads.

    8 Heads in a Duffel Bag is one of those movies that is so awful you wonder how it ever got made. The script is so bad that no character can ever say the right thing at the right time, and no character can ever explain themselves correctly. The screenplay is laughable, and the whole movie seems like a 10 minute SNL skit that ran 90 minutes too long. Don't be fooled by Joe Pesci as the main8 Heads in a Duffel Bag is one of those movies that is so awful you wonder how it ever got made.

    Appears to have been made by people with nothing between their ears.
  2. Aims for dark farce but ends up playing more like Weekend at Bernie's Part VIII. [25 Apr 1997, p. 50]

    One such feeble miscue that can't be saved by the star power of Joe Pesci and David Spade.
