    First-time directors Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski must have written the script for this comedy when they were about 12--and not changed a word.

    It's just a matter of holding your nose until the whole thing is over.
  3. It's a shrill, stupid, brickbat-blatant piece of hackwork that practically sweats to be ''commercial.''

    A black comedy that never gets black enough to inspire Farrelly-style decadence.

    Miraculously seems a great deal longer (this is not a good thing) as it careens from shit joke to corpse joke to ass joke to dog-turd joke and back.

    Go see this movie and you'll be...yup. You should save your money; Norm Macdonald should save his career, by quitting movies altogether.
  7. You've got to give Norm Macdonald credit. When he cheats his audience, he warns them first.

    The real disappointment is Danny DeVito as a creepy coroner.
  9. Gives stupid, vulgar comedy a bad name.
  10. A confusedly misconceived hybrid of interracial buddy comedy and imitation Marx Brothers farce.

    As bad as the title, and much longer.

    Latenight cable TV filler disguised as a feature film.

The pacing in this film is not the only problem with it. Norm Macdonald makes a terribly annoying lead that kills any chance for the film to be somewhat decent. You get what you expect from Dave Chappelle, but he can only bring a few laughs from this otherwise ill fated comedic mess. In many ways this film reminds me of 1941. Instead of making the attempt to write good comedy the film makers decide to have the actors just yell at each other the whole movie. Loud does not equal good comedy it is just annoying. I will say Danny DeVito was well cast, but ultimately his character got a little too creepy to enjoy. There are a couple plot twists that keep what is happening, but that does not change the fact that the movie is absolutely unfunny. The ending feels completely rushed, as throughout the movie so many ideas were crammed and forced into an unsatisfying resolution. Full Review »

    It's disappointing and at the same time confirms that ( Real ) critics are jaded and why you should not put stock into their opinions. It's disappointing and at the same time confirms that ( Real ) critics are jaded and why you should not put stock into their opinions. This is one of my all time favorite movies. I have easily watched this movie more than fifteen times. The entire cast is extremely funny. This one of the funniest movies ever made. It's funnier than Something about Mary that received plenty of acclaim. I feel that they rate it based on who is in the headline and not so much about the context. Do yourself a favor and disregard the critics opinions regarding this film and give it a chance. If you get Norm Mcdonald and Dave Chapelle' sense of humor then you will really enjoy this movie. Just writing this review makes me want to go back and watch it again. Full Review »
