    Walks a thin line between refreshing irreverence and shameless exploitation of offensive gay stereotypes.
  2. Heavily influenced by Guy Ritchie, director Mo gets most of his comic mileage from a Hasidic Jew and an angry dwarf -- which should tell you everything you need to know.
  3. If garbage could think, it would look down on 9 Dead Gay Guys as garbage.

    9 Dead Gay Guys, a dark comedy in the John Waters tradition, takes place in such a cartoonish, good-natured universe it's hard to imagine anyone taking offense.

    The film strains mightily to be flashy and hip but finishes more in the realm of the merely distasteful.

    Witless, sophomoric and relentlessly frenetic, 9 Dead Gay Guys... is about as funny and understated as its title.
  7. 0
    Offensive and unwatchable.

    The film scores points needling the guys' lingering insecurities.
  9. 20
    The execution is actually worse than the premise. Nonstop racial, sexual and cultural stereotypes parade across the screen with little wit or real humor to guide them.

    Great Fun. Forget the PC crap. A good 90 minutes of queer entertainment.
