Dropping quietly into theaters like a sneak attack on brain cells and good taste, C.B. Harding's rickety vehicle for Blue Collar Comedy is among the first films to mine the endless War on Terror for laughs.

What it really boils down to is whether you're a fan of Larry the Cable Guy. If so, you'll (I would hope) realize you're watching a pretty stupid comedy but will laugh in the appropriate parts.

Whatever your pet sensitivity -- the military, rednecks, gays, Mexicans -- this movie is an equal-opportunity denigrator.

War in Iraq isn't funny -- neither is this movie.

Larry the Cable Guy is not and has never been and never will be funny. The sooner everyone realizes this, the faster his movie career with go away.

The only farcical aspect of it is that it was greenlit in the first place.

It's OK to write comedies about morons%u2026as long as you don't insult the intelligence of the audience in the script.

Is it funny? Not really. All of its subversive potential is wasted on [director] Harding, and even the straight-ahead farce is joyless.

...a surefire reassurance that war is indeed hell...another prime example of ingenuity involving a box of crayons and someone's desperate idea for quick-witted lunacy.

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.

A romantic flicker between the dumpy Larry and a pretty local senorita defies all logic -- even in a movie this illogical.

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?

I can honestly say that I didn't laugh once

Perhaps best enjoyed by persons who have been lobotomized. After the first 30 minutes (I'm being generous), you may well feel like you have been.

As morale boosters go, Larry the Cable Guy is no Bob Hope, and it's hard to reconcile the contradiction of an overtly tasteless movie that doesn't want to offend the troops.

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.

Lord, I apologize, but Larry the Cable Guy just can't seem to get 'er done in a feature film.

Larry the Cable Guy makes the men and women of the armed forces wait until the tail-end of his Iraq war comedy, Delta Farce, to learn that the movie is dedicated to them. Haven't they been through enough?

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.
