As intelligent as it is entertaining, and it's the source of great good humor.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Designed to elicit as many gasps as laughs, Anders Thomas Jensen's pitch-black comedy offers an audaciously skewed take on good vs. evil.
| Original Score: 3/4
Peculiar but oddly winsome fable about the spiritual journeys of two diametrically opposed characters.
For all its roughhouse antics, Adam's Apples is almost improbably sweet: a rude comedy that the devout and heathen alike can hold to their breasts.
A noxious, flippant mix of snark and biblical allegory.
With the most bizarre characters we have seen in film for quite some time, this strange comedy leaves the viewer constantly off- balance.
| Original Score: 7/10
Features some nice humor, dry as an Empire apple left to wither and brown at room temperature, its juice sucked out but still pleasant to the taste.
| Original Score: B
Go-to screenwriter for the Dogma 95 collective, Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen hits a decidedly sour note with Adam's Apples.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I just wasn't, it turns out, the ideal audience for man's allegorical way of dealing with the demonic weightiness of the world.
| Original Score: 3/5
An odd, blacker-than-black comedy that's almost impossible to describe.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Adam ends up learning a lot of important life lessons, but this isn't sappy storytelling.
Adam's Apples slams together good and evil for maximum black-comedy impact.
| Original Score: 4/5
Jensen doesn't pretend it's cute and/or harmless -- there's a fascinating ambiguity to the happy fantasy laid over the misery and failure.
We have a comedy black enough to make even the most jaded viewer cringe a little.
| Original Score: C-
