    Originally titled Lady Killers, this rancid, underlit B-movie aspires to little more than cheap laughs eked out of the discomfort and queasiness Owen and Friedle feel over sexually servicing assertive, kinky old women.

    It all makes Nat Lamp's recent "Van Wilder" look like an instant classic.

    For the most part, The Gold Diggers is not even chuckle-producing. At best, it might warm a cockle or two or provoke a bit of a smile.

    By turns pointless and pointlessly mean-spirited.

    Nothing's quite so painful as failed comedy, and this atrocity is equivalent to a compound fracture.

    A movie so filled with contemptible, ugly and unfunny characters that it is physically difficult to watch.
  7. 0
    Certainly the most painfully unfunny of the countless bad movies that have licensed the name of the long-defunct humor magazine.

    Soul-touching. Thumbs up. Hands down, the greatest film of the year: don't miss under any circumstances.

    A truly insightful, hilarious romp that will no doubt bring tears of laughter and joy to the whole family. The scenes involving the young actors sexually engaging with old ladies brought particular glee to all who had the pleasure of viewing this fun holiday family treat. If you only see one comedy this year, make it this one! Well done everyone! Expand

    This was one of the top worst movies ever made. I can't believe this even made it to the theaters. It was not funny, had no point or plot. Its a waste of time, and not just mine - who ever thought of going through with producing this. Expand
