75
A murder caper that could have been written by Agatha Christie during a pub-crawl.
71
Follows a predictable low-comedy path, but does it with such fierce appeal and beautifully wrought wit that it doesn't feel quite like any comedy American theaters have seen since the equally underrated "Grosse Pointe Blank."
63
Tasteless but sporadically uproarious black comedy.
50
Has a made-for-TV smallness (it will probably be a big hit on cable), and it never quite vanquishes the nagging suspicion that you could be spending your time better elsewhere.

Philadelphia InquirerGary Thompson
It can be broadly funny when it does not lapse into lazy "Dukes of Hazzard" caricature, which is often.
42
Portland OregonianBob Thomas
The ensemble actors give it their all, and that's as it should be in an absurdist comedy of this sort.
40
Tries for deadpan laughs but is merely lifeless.
38
A comedy murder mystery gone seriously astray, boasts an immensely talented cast .
25
The bad-taste murder farce is just an excuse for a bunch of actors to go slumming and ride about in - ha, ha - Yugos.

There are enough mullets to win this movie a Stanley Cup.
20
There's a definite limit to the number of moron jokes we can absorb in 100 minutes, and their movie exceeds it.
10
As dumb as the film is, the actors escape relatively unscathed.
