This slasher/comedy isn't funny or entertaining.
| Original Score: 1/5
The Broken Lizard quintet follows its quintessential cult-comedy classic "Super Troopers" with something like "Ten Little Indians" interpreted by five big imbeciles - a slasher parody three "Screams" and three "Scary Movies" too late.
| Original Score: 0/4
Even if it doesn't really succeed as a thriller or a comedy, the film isn't simply a hack-job either.
| Original Score: C+
One of the better horror parodies, which if you ask me has been done to death.
| Original Score: B
The film's creators use sexual humor as a stand-in when they run out of vacuous little sub-sketches.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
You couldn't unload bootlegs of this asinine flick for free, much less charge money for them.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Only the ending of Club Dread, where the villain keeps coming back for more, shows any spark of imagination or wit. The rest of the time, things are pretty dull.
| Original Score: 4/10
Half as clever as Scream and too winking in its nihilism to approach the invigorating immorality of Scream 2
| Original Score: 2/4
Not so much as a movie as a 'Girls Gone Wild' video with the occasional slasher murder thrown in for fun.
A movie made by guys who laugh at their own jokes, directed at people who will laugh at anything.
The characters are the only joke in Club Dread, and they're not enough.
| Original Score: 2/5
...the story is just so dull that nothing can save it...
| Original Score: 1/4
An intriguing amalgam of straight-up genre movie silliness and a lampoon of said silliness, with no real way to tell which mode the film is in at any given time.
| Original Score: B-
The biggest problem with the film is that it's not as funny as it should be.
| Original Score: 3/5
These Broken Lizard guys simply aren't funny.
Like a feature-length episode of Girls Gone Wild, with dead bodies dropping with the same frequency as bikini tops.
Like the unkillable villain Broken Lizard parodies, the guys don't seem to realize when it's time to lay themselves to rest.
Here's an oddball movie that's better suited to rental than the big screen.
| Original Score: 2/4
Broken Lizard may not yet be Monty Python, but Club Dread is funnier than Super Troopers, and another comedy from the troupe will be a welcome sight.
The Broken Lizard crew bring a lot of energy, but the movie's rarely very funny, lacking an original perspective on the slasher genre that could make this project worthwhile.
