Film Journal International

A solid cast helps this quirky little comedy of existential angst.

If you can get through the tedious first half of Bob Funk, there's actually a decent little character study waiting on the other side.

An aggressively unwatchable comedy...

The dry, witty first half is far more interesting, even if it's ultimately more amusing than funny.

Bob Funk is terrifically cast and performed, with some good lines. Shame the story and character development are so cliché and banal.

Much like its titular character, the film itself has some serious growing up to do and needs a strong dose of warmth and charisma.

Looks like a comedy, acts like a comedy and sounds like a comedy, but it isn't funny.

[Bob Funk] insists that we find charm in its protagonist's most odious behavior.

Playing the misogynistic, bar-hopping, impulsive, titular irritant, Campbell's thespy histrionics come off as truly labored.

Mark Keizer
Boxoffice Magazine

A showcase for writer/director Craig Carlisle, Bob Funk is a broad, functional contrivance that has its jaunty moments, but doesn't work as a whole.

Carlisle's film is designed with a certain suburban flatness that at times perfectly reflects Bob's inner deadness, though not his periodic spurts of sarcastic rage.

Movies -- especially inconsequential, earnest comedies like Bob Funk -- about how people achieved their sobriety " are as fascinating as listening to people recount the plot of their dreams.
