Delta Farce (2007)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Too afraid to be a real satire of the Iraq War, Delta Farce instead devolves into a reprehensible, unfunny mix of slapstick, gay panic, and flatulence jokes.


Movie Info

When a hard-luck blue-collar worker and his two best friends are mistaken for Army Reservists by a tough-talking Army sergeant, the plane set to fly them to the front lines of Iraq mistakenly drops them in the middle of Mexico to disastrous results in a freewheeling military comedy starring Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and D.J.

If ribbing the U.S. armed forces was considered unpatriotic after 9/11, then Delta Farce proves that discussion of the Iraq War has now officially jumped the shark.

Here's a sobering thought: If every war gets the comedy it deserves, could Delta Farce, a strenuously unfunny Three Amigos knockoff, be our M*A*S*H?

Like Paths Of Glory, Apocalypse Now, and Platoon, Delta Farce is a difficult, harrowing work offering little relief or humor. Unlike those movies, though, Delta Farce is supposed to be funny.

A mindless comedy where the blatant racial stereotypes are outnumbered only by the flatulence jokes.

Among the many minorities mocked are Muslims, but perhaps the people most insulted are white Southerners, who presumably are expected to embrace one whopping brain-dead metaphor.

There are henpecked-husband jokes, gay jokes, turd humor, mispronounced Iraq war terms, guys asking "Who farted?" and lots more Crackel Barrel comedy.

Audience Reviews for Delta Farce

½

Hey, it's meant to be a stupid comedy, so slam it as much as you wish! It had me laughing. It's as good as the Three Amigos and Machete, which I consider to be great comedies. There's a fair amount of Mexican, gay, military and toilet jokes in this Farce. I'm a fan of Larry the Cable Guy, though he shares the lead with the two other guys Bill Engvall and DJ Qualls.. The movie moves along at a nice pace. It's great seeing Danny Trejo as the funny badguy Carlos Santana. Nobody really gets hurt in this. I wish Lisa Lampanelli had more screen time as the nagging wife. The songs and musical score are actually quite good. It was fun overall, and I'd watch it again.

Delta Farce has got to be the most awful, shallow, poorly constructed comedy film ever made. This is a film that makes every Pauly Shore film look like classics by comparison. You know right from the start that the cast for this horrid train wreck will not be good when you have Larry The Cable Guy, a comedian who's become so unfunny, so quickly that people now realize how primitive his style of comedy was. With Delta Farce, the filmmakers basically took, Larry The Cable Guy's one trick comedy routine and made an hour and a half long minute out of it. Truly original. Sounds like something that Pauly Shore did with every one of his films, at least no matter how bad the films were; he did manage to give me a few chuckles. But with Larry The Cable Guy, he's just too painful to watch on screen. I don't like his work, and I think he should retire from the comedy business. The guy was maybe funny for a year or so, but now he's yet another pointless comedian. Delta Farce is a painful comedy that is so poorly written and acted that you wonder how this trash could be green lit and shown in theatres. Oh well, they'll market anything to make a quick buck.
