This quirky comedy thriller, produced by Ridley Scott, is both blackly funny and, at times, tensely disturbing and quite macabre.

Vince Vaughn may play the two best movie serial killers this year if his Norman Bates rendition can match his performance in Clay Pigeons.

The boyishly braying laugh Vaughn punctuates his conversations with is a true actor's finesse on his character.

This is not your classic whodunit. It's blacker, funnier, and edgier.

Mr. Vaughn is possessed not only of long limbs and an attractive face, but also of a distinctive voice that he uses to command attention, even when his material is routine.

Actually brings a clean, new and very funny edge to the weathered genre of crime and sleaze.

Stephen Farber

It's a beautifully structured piece with a high quotient of neat, shocking twists. Director David Dobkin exercises welcome restraint; although the movie is full of macabre touches, it's witty rather than grotesque.

To call this a creepy black comedy is a serious understatement.

Vince Vaughn steals the film as Lester Long. Vaughn is very natural in front of a camera with an easy charm and grace.

Clay Pigeons isn't a great film -- it's black and it's a comedy, but never enough of either -- but it is supremely interesting to watch.

The performances are terrific -- especially Vince Vaughn, who makes a formidable cowboy, and is a real scene stealer.
