    Thornton plays this low-ball farce with deceptive, masterful ease. Appreciate it.

    The movie's "Beverly Hillbillies" humor had me laughing moderately, and by the end I wasn't even looking around to make sure no one noticed.
  3. This half-baked production sat on Miramax's shelf for a couple of years. It's no more done now than then, merely more stale.

    It's never a good sign when a movie's credits include: ''Tony Orlando as himself.'' But the crooner is the highlight of the dreadful Waking Up in Reno.

    Its jokes aren't funny. Its sloppy direction comes courtesy of Jordan Brady, who made "The Third Wheel," another reportedly failed comedy gathering cobwebs at Miramax.
  6. 20
    Director Jordan Brady achieves the remarkable feat of squandering a topnotch foursome of actors -- particularly Theron, a very game and able comedienne -- by shoving them into every clichéd white-trash situation imaginable.
  7. The one thing that can be said of Waking Up in Reno is that it's rigorously consistent. Every note rings false.
