    As dumb spoofs go, The Comebacks isn't bad. It takes almost every sports movie of the last five years ("Field of Dreams," too) and blends them into a single slapdash comedy.

    It’s mostly eighty-four minutes of puns, double entendres, and Freudian slips.

    Adhering to few solid comedic principles, The Comebacks swings wildly between lame movie references and slapstick, slightly less lame funny names (such as Aseel Tare, the running back who couldn't possibly be injured) and Airplane!-style spoof, and a few mildly amusing stabs at irony.

    Someone should tell these guys you can't score a touchdown throwing lateral passes.
  5. 30
    Isn’t as obnoxiously awful as, say, "Epic Movie"; it’s simply not funny in the least.
  6. The movie’s low aspirations are depressing because its best gags are agreeably demented.
  7. Probably the worst movie that's sludged across my professional eyeballs -- worse than "Daddy Day Camp," "Baby Geniuses 2," and "BloodRayne."

    Walked out of this movie. Only the second time in my life and I go to a lot of movies. This is not funny. It is painfully not funny. The Walked out of this movie. Only the second time in my life and I go to a lot of movies. This is not funny. It is painfully not funny. The "jokes" are cruel and crude and there is no point to this movie. This makes Epic and Scary IV look like award winners. Bad acting bad script and boring. Expand
