The gags come fast and furiously with one-liners to make the case that liberals don't have exclusive rights to humor in Hollywood.
| Original Score: B
... while it may be (director David Zucker's) passion for the (obvious conservative agenda), it's easily more entertaining than either Scary Movie 3 or 4.
| Original Score: 3/4
I'm giving it a just-barely-recommended grade not because it's terribly funny (which it isn't), but because it's fascinating as a cultural artifact.
| Original Score: B-
The right should follow Zucker's lead engage its liberal opposition with humor rather than the crass protests and attempts at bans usually flung at Moore's films.
It's neat to see a movie from another point of view... Still, the movie has a message, and that message gets in the way of the comedy at least half of the time
| Original Score: 3/5
You could strip every last marginally political idea from the movie, and it would still probably be one of the most grueling, unfunny things released that year.
| Original Score: 2/10
It is hard to believe that a comedy this singularly inept and downright unfunny came from one of the minds behind one of the funniest comedies of all time, Airplane!.
Kada vi%u0161e potrebe za Michaelom Mooreom ne bude, potrebe za filmovima koje tog istog Moorea parodiraju bit %u0107e jo%u0161 manje.
| Original Score: 5/10
Using sledgehammer gags in the service of a dissent-bashing tale, Zucker aims for the flag-waving brio of Warner Bros. cartoons during World War II, but he succeeds only in ruining Farley's big break.
| Original Score: 1/4
just too insular to be engaging
| Original Score: 2/5
What could have been an amusing riff looks more like a propaganda film out to destroy Moore rather than spoof him.
| Original Score: 1/5
... the jokes are lame and the caricatures too removed from any defensible reality.
An American Carol dares to mock the Left, but it forgets to bring the funny.
| Original Score: 2/4
Zucker's film reeks of a deeply insecure psychosis, one that's often insultingly mislabeled as patriotism -- which is how it gets away with wrapping itself in red, white and blue while simultaneously ridiculing our Bill Of Rights.
An American Carol, David Zucker's mirthless conservative rally guised as an update on Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale, hits a new low.
| Original Score: D
This movie is seriously unfunny, and it's not just my admittedly left-wing politics that are in the way of my getting the joke.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
Nice try, but I'd watch Airplane! again first.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Overall, Zucker's cinematic middle finger is about as funny as an exploding toilet seat for hemorrhoid-induced senior citizens...a dreary picture mired in sophomoric sludge.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Utterly asinine, sophomoric, tasteless, the movie has much in common with Zucker's Airplane!, The Naked Gun 2 1/2 and Scary Movie sequels, minus the laughs.
...too unfocused and ill-disciplined to work either as Dickens pastiche or as political satire.
